About This Activity

Description

All jazz theory students, regardless of placement, should register for this course. There are three levels of jazz theory. Material covered includes the principles used for analyzing jazz compositions and the vocabulary used by jazz musicians for compositional and improvisational development, with an emphasis on understanding common technical terms and also on learning to apply theoretical constructs to playing and/or singing in a performance setting. Recordings of well-known jazz pieces are used to demonstrate theory concepts. Additional topics include dominant function, modal interchange, deceptive resolution, diminished chords and scales, the IV# minor seventh chord with flat 5, modulation, and compound chords. Students analyze tunes written by jazz masters and write their own. The most advanced class covers sophisticated jazz harmony and improvisation.
