JAZZ BAND: TERM 2
This course is designed for experienced musicians working at NCEA level music who are wanting to develop their improvisation skills and perform as part of a working jazz band. This course requires a high level of commitment, as we will be working towards tours and competitions later in the year. Numbers on this course are limited - please come and talk to Matt Davis before enrolling! There are a number of NCEA assessment opportunities available, including solo and group performance standards and composition stands at all levels.
This course will be co-taught by Matt and Shaun.
You should be in at least your 3rd year of instrumental study, and have a fairly advanced understanding of music theory (Grade 4 or equivalent). You will need to demonstrate the ability to self-manage in music, and be prepared to spend at least 7 hours per week outside of class time practicing and rehearsing. You must talk to Matt before enrolling in this course.
