A comprehensive approach to understanding and applying jazz theory to improvisation
Saturdays 10:00 am – 11:30 am
This eight week class, taught by saxophonist Daryl Gott, will develop your understanding of the connection between jazz theory and its application in improvisation. Students will learn fluidity on basic triads, seventh chords and uncommon altered chords, while simultaneously understanding their chord scale relationship. Students will study common forms such as the blues, rhythm changes, AABA and uncommon odd and through-composed forms. Utilizing these concepts, students will learn to develop motivic and rhythmic ideas in their solos. Daryl will cover strategies for transcribing chord progressions, melodies and improvisations and implementing those transcribed ideas in a natural and personal way.
