Jazz Fundamentals

In this course, we'll learn the essential skills needed to successfully play jazz with other musicians! "It don't mean a thing if it aint got that swing," and what better way to learn how to swing then playing along with a real life rhythm section of New York City professionals! We'll learn classic repertoire made famous by Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong, with real upright bass and drums helping us get in the groove along the way. If you've always been curious about jazz, but haven't been sure where to begin, then this is the course for you!

Prerequisites:

Desire to put a name to the sounds of jazz and a willingness to try improvising! This course is beginner friendly, but also valuable information for players of any level who want to understand jazz on a deeper level.
