This 12-week performance course is an introduction to the language and concepts of Jazz improvisation. The course will use classic performances as material for developing listening acuity, vocabulary, memory, analysis, and historical grasp of the music’s evolution in the mid-20th century. By the end of the course, students should be able to improvise through basic song forms with technical competence and confidence in their ability to hear and produce melodies spontaneously.
