This course focuses on small ensemble performance and builds on the work of JAZZ 296 with more challenging repertoire. Students will receive coaching during weekly rehearsals to improve ensemble interaction, and to provide techniques and methods to help them to use rehearsal time effectively and to creatively interpret music in a wide variety of styles within the jazz idiom. In addition to live performance, the students will gain performance experience in a studio recording environment.
JAZZ 296 with a grade of C- or higher, and JAZZ 283 as a pre- or co-requisite
