Syllabus:

Jazz Musicianship 3 will continue to build on the theoretical and practical skills developed in Jazz Musicianship 2A and 2B. Students will explore melodic, rhythmic and harmonic features of advanced jazz standards and contemporary jazz tunes through study of relevant texts, audio and video files, musical scores and transcribed solos. Students will apply their knowledge through technical exercises which feature advanced chord progressions (including non-functional harmony and Coltrane changes) extended and altered chords, various scale types (including triad + 1, pentatonics and hexatonics) various intervallic patterns (such as 3rds and 4ths) and upper structure triads. There will be a continued focus on the development of the student's rhythmic awareness through the playing of stylistically appropriate rhythm patterns and exercises with a particular focus on controlling rhythmic subdivisions and displacement. Odd time signatures will also be investigated. Free Jazz concepts will be explored, with a particular focus on the early FreeBop approach utilised by Ornette Coleman. Students will be encouraged to compose music in many of the styles and approaches discussed in class.
