Jazz | Pop Theory I & II Classes
Starting end of january
What's covered in class?
Jazz Theory I: This class covers the basic fundamentals of music theory, ranging from writing notation, clefs and time signatures, up through the major scale system, the introduction of the circle of 4ths/5ths and the diatonic system. Students will also learn how to compose a song melody. We will end the class with triad chord spelling, which are used in Jazz and much of modern music.
Jazz Theory II: This class picks up where the first class ends, reviewing scale and chord spellings, going over the diatonic system and learning how to use it; moving into basics of chord progressions - including Jazz chord progressions, along with discovering extended 7th chords and chordal alterations. [WINTER 2019 Semester]
Overall, these classes will prepare any student with the tools they need to start exploring the harmonic color of musical sound on their instrument; plus, having the ability to analyze other musician's music as well as composing music themselves.
