Miles Ahead Improv Sessions
In this hands-on class on improvisation, you’ll learn to recognize chord symbols, and to identify scales and note choices that go with chords. Every week, you’ll use that knowledge to have fun playing jazz! You’ll learn by playing lots of great pieces from the jazz repertoire, and by getting more familiar with the vocabulary of jazz. Most important, you’ll sound better by increasing your creativity and confidence.
Classes meet on four Monday evenings, (6/17, 6/24, 7/1 and 7/8) – 5:30 – 7:30p.m, at Braun Music Center on the campus of Stanford University. Open to middle and high school music students and adults.
