Build a foundation for approaching jazz improvisation while learning how to tran- scribe on your own and how to incorporate transcription study during practice time. Topics introduced during this course will include major, minor, dominant, and blues scale applications and patterns, as well as the ii-V-I chord progression, where it occurs, and how to identify it. Blues and standard song forms will be analyzed as well as how to “realize chord changes” using scales and patterns. This course will benefit beginners and experienced players alike. As part of this course, you will have the opportunity to utilize “play-alongs” for optimized practice time, and also examine a transcription of a classic jazz standard. Please bring your instrument as all students will perform during the class.
