Syllabus:

Jazz theory, improvisation and arranging will all be delivered in this course through study of relevant texts, audio and video files, musical scores and transcribed solos. Theory and improvisation will be closely linked through practical application of technical exercises including scales and chords to the blues and standard jazz tunes and song form. Jazz arranging explores techniques of rhythmic, melodic, harmonic and textural elements for small and medium-size jazz ensembles. Practical application is made of the study of the rhythm section, mixed five-horn section, sketch score and score layout. Score reading, study of styles of contemporary arrangers and composers and the use of notation software are also included.
