For some people learning to play jazz by studying chords, scales, & intervals has gotten a bad rap. Chords, scales, and intervals are simply different ways to organize, think about, discuss, and practice the various melodic and harmonic resources that make up The Sounds of Jazz. In this class we will discuss how the sounds of jazz can be organized into scales and chords. Pat will discuss, demonstrate, and engage the participants in various practice activities that will develop mastery of jazz theory, instrumental technique, and the musical ear in a way that unites the three aspects. Every great musician plays by ear 100% of the time, but the ability to do that has to be earned through investing in “sweat equity.”
