Small Group Jazz Ensemble II

This second course of a four-course series focuses on intermediate-level preparation and performance of small group jazz. Intermediate-level students study jazz from a wide variety of historical eras, ranging from the 1940s bebop style to contemporary styles. The course reinforces fundamental aspects of jazz performance, including increasingly complex rhythmic and stylistic interpretation. It also introduces concepts of conversational jazz performance and beginning-level jazz improvisation. Students are required to attend both on- and off-campus performances and events.
