Intermediate Jazz Ear Training
Sep 17 - May 13 (Saturday)
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
From Sep 17, 2016 to May 13, 2017
Each Saturday from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
This class is for students entering into the NEC Jazz program, who have some previous experience with some interval recognition and chords, but are not yet accurate in identifying chords specific to jazz and more complex intervals. The class is meant to be a preparation for Advanced Jazz Ear Training, and can be applied to Level 1, 2, and 3 of the Jazz Certificate program, but not Level 4 of the Jazz Certificate program. The course will include improvisation, recognizing and singing bass lines, voice led harmony and tensions, development of musical memory, as well as identification of rhythmic development. Source material will include recorded jazz compositions and improvisations.
If you have questions about this class please call the NEC Prep School office at (617)585-1160. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in class.
