Jazz Improvisation Workshop
November 3 @ 3:00 pm
This 60-minute workshop is part of the annual 2018 MTAC Popular Music Festival, and it is open to all participants who perform in the Festival on the same day. The event is geared toward teachers as well as intermediate- or advanced-level instrumentalists who have the theory understanding of at least CM level 5. Improvisers of all levels are welcome. Students are expected to play the melody of a song then improvise over the chord progression of the song in an appropriate jazz style such as swing, bossa and funk. Pianists will be accompanied by a bass player and a drummer. Performers will be coached by our expert jazz educators.
