Through performing in a jazz combo, students explore and perform all styles of jazz from its inception to today; including Dixieland, swing, bebop, cool, hard bop, Latin, modal, free, fusion, and contemporary. Emphasis is placed on a working knowledge of standard jazz repertoire as well as the development of original compositions. Included is instruction in Jazz Improvisation, Theory, Composition, History, and Styles and Analysis.
