Class topics include modern harmonic movement, modal hierarchies, chord substitutions, alternate modes, compound chords, chromatism, and improvisational pacing of theoretical concepts. The class will use recordings of well-known jazz pieces to demonstrate theory concepts. Students will spend much time analyzing compositions and improvisations by jazz masters, and composing.
