This series is all about Jazz. If you like the Great American Songbook, you will love this!
Yupp, that’s the most important thing!
Good swing feel is created from understanding the subdivision, phrasing and articulation, feeling the drummer’s swing feel.
It takes a bit of technique and a dash of patience, but this is where it must start!
Learn the ding-a-la and the Katching and people will love t play with you!
This class will get you ready for Jazz jams, will improve your skills so you get the call back from your bands and give you confidence and rhythmic stability.
You will also get a great set list under your belt!
Easy Going Jazz is right for you if you love the Great American Songbook and want to foray into walking bass lines. We start out with a simple blues, then graduate to a Jazz Blues and work our way up to Fly Me to the Moon and Autumn Leaves. A bit in 3/4, and some Bossa for good measure!
This course will go over the Diatonic Cycle, a landmark theory detail. Knowing simple intervals and triads helps, and there will be lots of review of the theory shapes, and of course, lots of practice.
Level 1 starts out nice and easy.
Feel free to join Level 2 if you already have experience walking changes.
Welcome to Ten Week Live Classes with a small group of peers LIVE on zoom or doozzoo with Ari or a handpicked teacher!
