JAZZ BAND: TERM 3
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.
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.
