When: Sun., Feb. 7, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Let's look deeply at this often requested, widely beloved (and sometimes hated!) of jazz standards, “The Girl from Ipanema.” We'll review how the A section makes easy sense and see how the bridge makes impeccable sense as well—and is easy to play over—when you look at it through the right lenses. The instructor will offer lots of practical advice about improvising fluidly over the song and relating it to other pieces that don't seem as challenging. Students improvise (optional but encouraged) and are critiqued, with recommendations for a direct path to improvement.
