10 weeks - no class 11/23. This course will be conducted live via video conferencing. Log-in information will be sent to students before the first class meeting! This course both prepares pianists to work in a jazz trio setting and to refine and advance the skills of pianists who are already doing so. Topics include a wide variety of approaches to interpreting and harmonizing melodies, from the traditional to the contemporary, in addition to essential rhythmic concepts and ideas for developing as an improviser. Students may optionally make use of the iReal Pro app for real-time playing online.
