Jazz+ Online Learning

Students will explore many forms of contemporary improvised music, practice methods, approaches, and perspectives, as well as the practical applications of music theory and ear training. Guest clinicians will include a broad range of artists, educators, and business people. Students will perform for each other (sometimes together) online as well as collaborate on remote recording projects. No prior experience improvising is required, but simply a willingness to participate and try new things!
