About This Activity

Description

An introduction to the harmonic and analytic vocabulary used by jazz musicians for compositional and improvisational development. Emphasis is on understanding common technical terms and also on learning to quickly apply theoretical constructs to playing and/or singing in a performance setting. The class will feature excerpts from notable jazz recordings to illustrate the various concepts being explored. Class topics include chord construction, key signatures, diatonic modes and chord scales, basic extended jazz harmony, guide tones, and voice leading, as found in standard jazz chord progressions.
