Small Ensembles



Adult Jazz Workshop

Colburn’s Adult Jazz Workshops consist of musicians who are proficient on their instruments and have some experience in jazz studies. This summer we will explore the jazz genre through active listening, discussion, and application of specific elements of jazz performance. All group members are encouraged to contribute to exchange of ideas and apply concepts by recording themselves to share with the class. New students welcome, please contact instructor Liz Kinnon for more information at [email protected]

Jazz Theory
Explore theory and harmony as it applies to the jazz idiom, with a focus on ways to approach an improvised solo. Areas of study include tonality, form, ear training, chord extensions, scale sources, thematic ideas, and common progressions. We will also learn to identify common tools and strategies by analyzing solos by jazz masters. Prerequisites: A very strong knowledge of all major scales, key signatures, and triads. Familiarity with 4-part chords strongly recommended. Sightreading not required, but students must be able to read music. Instructor: Ms. Liz Kinnon.
