Take an in-depth look at: Introduction to Jazz.
The Jazz course gives students a wonderful overview on the history of jazz music and why jazz is truly an American music genre. We’ll explain improvisation and why it’s so important in jazz. The course focuses on some of the main styles and instruments of jazz. Included is a Musical Movement Minute featuring a “Call and Response” movement vocal exercise. And finally, students will be introduced to a few jazz pioneers and some of today’s great jazz artists – artists like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Diana Krall and Branford Marsalis.
