Basic Blues Improv

Timothy Burt
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(41)
#creative This is a one-week crash course on the basics of jazz improvisation for school band students, ages 13-17.

Class experience

This class is taught in English.
The student will learn form and theory of 12-bar blues, common tones and near tones between adjacent chords, rhythmic patterns, and riffs that can be used to form initial improvisation material.  The student will be instructed to play along with the instructor and an accompaniment track during class, play samples back to the class, and record one's self to share with the teacher.  
The instructor has 16 years of experience teaching band classes in public, private, and parochial and an equal number of years teaching private music lessons.  He understands the need for discretion in choice of supplemental materials.  He will screen each recording before putting it on a sheet of recommended study materials.  
1) An instrument in good working order: all valves, slides move freely, and are well lubricated.  Reed instruments need at least two good reeds.  
2) Ability to view PDFs on a tablet/laptop/PC or print out them out for practice.
3) A pencil and notebook/notepad for writing down important concepts, thoughts, ideas. 
4) An hour a day for three days to devote personal study and practice before the next session. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will receive materials from the teacher posted in the class information email.  
A list of recordings of accompaniment tracks on will be provided as well.  These recordings have already been pre-screened to insure there is no inappropriate content.  
Examples of instrumental soloists will also be provided so students can hear the creative work of professionals playing in the same genre.  These recordings are meant to enhance the student's enjoyment of the class by showing models of good jazz solo content.   Again, these videos have been screened for inappropriate content.
