MUSIC 120D: Jazz Improvisation

This class will focus on developing a deeper understanding of, and capacity for, jazz improvisation -- as it relates to individual expression as well as group interaction, communication, and cohesion. In-class soloing and ensemble playing; guided listening; ear training; internalization; personalization; and an awareness of the historical evolution of the jazz improvisational language will all be emphasized. The coursework will be primarily based on actual instrumental performance and practice; with an extensive listening list; and possibly some complementary composition, transcribing, self-evaluation; reading and writing assignments. Limited enrollment: Audition required. Students auditioning for Music 120D may submit the same audition material for consideration for Music 120E and vice-versa, but they are asked to make clear that they are applying for both (or, alternatively, for just one of the two, and if so, which one.) This class will be closed to enrollment, so students wishing to enroll must join the Axess waiting list. You will then be contacted with audition instructions. By enrolling in this course you are giving consent for the video and audio recording and distribution of your image and performance for use by any entity at Stanford University.

MUSIC 120E: Advanced Jazz Improvisation

This class will focus on broadening the participants' fluency with established improvisational languages, encouraging them to trust and develop their own unique improvisational voices, and deepening their capacities for integrating those individual voices into a collaborative musical framework -- working and playing together as a group, forging a collective identity, finding a band sound. In-class soloing and ensemble playing; guided listening; ear training; internalization; personalization; transcription, composition and arranging will all be emphasized. The coursework will be primarily based on actual instrumental performance and practice; with an extensive list of tracks to listen to and tunes to learn. The class will spend ample time focusing on the repertoire from the jazz "canon" (works by jazz masters such Ellington, Monk, Parker, Shorter, Mingus, Coltrane, Coleman, etc, as well as "standards" from the American popular songbook).
