PLAY MORE JAZZ! – A Jazz Odyssey
This is a practical course for all musicians wishing to develop their skills in jazz performance and improvisation. With a ‘tune a week’ approach students will learn repertoire, improvisation skills, develop instrumental proficiency and broaden their knowledge of the story of jazz from a practical perspective.
The focus this term is the celebration of a century of jazz: from the melting pot of New Orleans through the birth of swing, bebop, cool and fusion. This ten-week course will take a retrospective look at the development of jazz composition and improvisation through the decades, focusing on the pivotal players and tunes that have shaped the course of this epic story.
The online sessions will be delivered in weekly 90-minute sessions, via YouTube video and are open to all musicians who would like to learn about jazz performance and improvisation. Although a basic working knowledge of your instrument is required for these sessions, the course is open to beginners and experienced players.
This is very much a practical online course, as well as tutor demonstrations there will be opportunities for students to play along with various exercises during the sessions, and although current technology does not allow us to play as an ensemble simultaneously, all students will hear and be able to interact with the tutor’s sound feed and be able to field questions during the session via the ‘live chat’ text function.
The course fee is £120 for a 10-session term. You may also pay £15 per session (£30 minimum payment).
There are some half-price bursaries available for adults aged 18-25 (please email email@example.com for details).
