Syllabus:

In this course students will continue to develop the fundamental skills that provide the foundation for a career in jazz. Students will study tunes on the first year tunes list which at this point focuses on traditional jazz tunes, riff-tunes from the Swing era and some simple jazz standards. Students will analyse solos performed by the greats on some of these tunes, explore relevant chords and scales, create simple bass lines, and explore simple reharmonisation concepts. Students will also develop aural skills through interval recognition, rhythmic dictation, chord and scale recognition. One of the weekly sessions will be spent continuing to develop core keyboard skills so the students can more easily grasp the concepts explored. Students will learn to play simple jazz accompaniments, basic bass lines and some jazz voicings on the piano.
