About This Activity

Description

(Ages 11 - 15)


This hands-on ensemble helps students of all instruments develop the skills needed to improvise and perform in a jazz ensemble setting. Students learn how to play from a fakebook, how to listen to and interact with each other while improvising in groups, and explore elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, structure, and expression through the standard jazz repertoire.

No previous experience in improvising or playing jazz is necessary, making this class perfect not only for beginning jazz musicians looking to improve their skills, but also classical and contemporary musicians wishing to branch out into new musical territory.

Please note: Students should be able to read music and have at least one year of experience taking lessons on their instrument. Some experience using a fakebook is preferred, but not required. For more information, please contact Gary Prince, Jazz Program Chair, at (202) 686-6000 x1016 or
gprince@levinemusic.org.




Please note: Students who are enrolled in private lessons qualify for a $30 tuition discount for this ensemble during the same semester. To apply the discount, please contact Student Services at (202) 686-8000 x1076 OR 1042.
