JCM Fundamentals: Improv 2

Spring 2023

Taught By:

Section: A

CRN: 9118

Credits: 3

In this course students begin the exploration of the effect of European tempered harmony on the continued development of American music (Blues, Gospel, Jazz, R&B, Folk etc). Building on their ability to improvise melodically, rhythmically, and over V-I and IV-I movements, students further develop and internalize rhythmic divisions/superimpositions, and secondary cadencial movements through imitation, practice, and improvisation over the Blues, Rhythm Changes, and common song forms. Students will learn to recognize and improvise on diminished and dominant movements to related major and minor keys. This course culminates in recognizing and applying through improvisation and accompaniment, tritone dominant related harmony. American music from the 20's through the 40's (into "bebop") will be studied for historical context and aural development. This class will be held with instruments in hand. Skills will be developed primarily by ear.
