Each instrumental group will work with a coach on ‘jazz standards’ as well as innovative compositions written by jazz instrumentalists in a variety of styles. The class may touch on everything from the 1940's bebop of Charlie Parker and the 1960's modal jazz of John Coltrane to the current compositions of modern jazz artists such as John Scofield or Branford Marsalis, and music composed by Lake Field Music's own faculty.Participants will be placed in groups based on information provided in the course selection form. The type of groups formed depends upon the enrolled participants’ experience, skill level and instrument.
These groups are for intermediate/advanced instrumentalists comfortable reading lead sheets and playing scales in various keys so that they can focus on improvising, which is a big part of this kind of group. Less experienced players should try Introduction to Jazz Improvisation.The ensembles will perform at the end of the week.This class has limited enrolment.
