Jazz Performance 3 - JAZZ2603

Year - 2018

In this unit of study students will further develop advanced skills and understanding in jazz improvisation, and an increased level of instrumental skill to facilitate its performance. The students will become acquainted with more complex suitable and essential jazz repertoire, the study of which will be informed by acquiring a detailed knowledge of chord/scale relationships and of how the harmonic structures that are commonplace in jazz repertoire function. At the conclusion of this unit of study students will be able to demonstrate an ability to solo over a set of major 2-5-1, and minor 2-5-1 exercises, that are drawn from the type of chord sequences commonly found in jazz performance practice, demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the prescribed second year repertoire list as covered in improvisation classes and principal study lessons, demonstrate an increased level of understanding fundamental to more advanced performance issues, and demonstrate an appreciation of the importance of transcription of the work of great jazz artists as an aid to understanding jazz improvisation.
