T26 Working with Jazz Standards

Ben Creighton Griffiths

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


5 Day Course (Saturday to Wednesday)

For this more advanced class we will tackle some jazz standards, and see how we would prepare them for performance both as a soloist and in a band. This will cover interpreting chord charts, creating introductions, playing the head, improvising, and more. Knowledge of classical harmony, some basic jazz theory, and a proficient level of playing would be useful for this class. While aimed at pedal harpists, lever harp players are welcome in this class.
