MWF 12:00 pm-01:00 pm MUSIC 219 Randall Bauer
This course will investigate theoretical parameters of jazz through a synergy of written exercises, in-class playing, and composition; it is designed to develop and strengthen skills related to jazz performance. We will also survey scholarly literature on aspects of improvisation with respect to cognition, behavioral science, anthropology, and improvisation's manifestation throughout the arts. Performance and composition topics to include chord voicings and nomenclature, ear training, scales and modes, stylistic development, transcription, harmonic progression and substitutions, form, arranging. Genres include mainstream, bop/hard bop, and modal jazz (post-60s). Students must read music and play an instrument (not necessarily a traditional jazz instrument). Some theory background helpful. Vocalists welcome; secondary instrumental experience desirable (e.g. piano).
