Open to all instrumentalists and vocalists this practical course will focus on the in depth exploration of a course repertoire of 3 or 4 pieces and weave all aspects of jazz development into the sessions. Technical work and objectives will be developed alongside rhythmic work and the continued exploration and application of jazz harmony to understanding jazz pieces and developing your personal strategy for improvisation.

Entry Requirements

To be eligible for this course you must be 19 or over on 31st August prior to the course start date.

You will need to be of an intermediate level and not a beginner to your instrument, if in any doubt please contact the college for advice. Sight reading is useful but not essential as repertoire is developed slowly and in depth and music can be leaned at your own pace.
