Section 2 - Thurs, 6:30 - 8 pm, 1/14 - 3/18 (10 weeks). This introductory course in jazz improvisation follows a step-by-step method to build the foundational skills necessary to play improvised solos over common jazz chord progressions. Starting with learning to play swinging phrases derived from the blues scale, we gradually add additional tools, developing the ability to construct convincing improvised solos in major and minor keys and modal settings, as applied to jazz standards. Prepares students for participation in intro-level jazz ensembles. Prerequisites: knowledge of major and minor scales; major, minor and dominant 7th chords. Instructor: Rob Ewing
