This two-semester class is designed to give beginning and intermediate jazz students ear training using musical vocabulary from the many different eras in jazz history. Students will be taught to identify basic intervals, chord sounds, and rhythms that are crucial building blocks in developing basic Jazz aural skills. The class will use recorded source material, and there will be some simple transcription exercises. Designed to complement Jazz Theory I, this class ensures that students not only are familiar with the theoretical terminology and protocol of jazz, but that they also can aurally internalize (hear) and externalize (play and sing) jazz theory concepts.
