In this class, vocalists learn creative exercises which connect ear training, theory, and melodic/rhythmic concepts to expand their expressive abilities and jazz vocabulary. Short melodic and harmonic transcriptions will be learned and studied to build fluency and provide examples.
Focus will be on developing musicianship to creatively modify melodies, improvise, and/or generally feel more confident in your knowledge of the jazz language. These concepts will be shown in written music notation as well, and applied and practiced over jazz standards.
Class meets 1.5 hours weekly
