Participants will learn to interpret a “lead sheet” from a “fakebook” and create chord voicings that are genre-specific. There will also be some tips on improvising and discussion on the difference between solo piano and ensemble playing. Music will be provided, although participants are allowed to bring in a piece they may already be working on. This class is perfect for the jazz enthusiast who has limited or no experience with the idiom.
This class is aimed at intermediate/advanced keyboard players with at least RCM grade 6 and fairly strong reading skills. A knowledge of basic chords types, intervals and the cycle of fifths will prove extremely helpful.This class will not perform at the end of the week.This class has limited enrolment.
