When: Mondays, 6:30-8 p.m. Continues through Nov. 30
10 weeks - no class 11/23. Please note: This course will be conducted live via video conferencing. This course gives students a strong foundation in the Great American Songbook repertoire and the ability to improvise over chord progressions with correct notes and good phrasing. Several compositions will be used as vehicles to study basic chord structures, scale structures and non-diatonic neighboring tones. Emphasis is placed on utilization of basic harmonic concepts, thereby turning exercises into melody. A step-by-step conceptual approach is used and a new concept is added with each new tune.
