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.
Students are given practical theory, music listening, and skill development practice assignments between each session. This study/practice session is done by the student between sessions. Each study/practice assignment will take about an hour to reinforce the day's lesson.
1) An instrument in good working order: all valves, slides move freely, and are well lubricated. 2) Ability to practice from PDFs on a tablet/laptop, 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.
The student's progress will be monitored through verbal exchange of concepts, demonstration on the student's instrument, and the student submitting recorded playing samples to the teacher.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
