WESTMINSTER TOWERS & SHORES
Harry Miedema
Jazz is composition without an eraser. Its mixture of African musical culture and Western European musical culture has made it a truly American music. In this course, with the help of numerous music selections, we’ll seek to define jazz and explore a range of topics such as improvisation, the art of transcription, the art of listening, learning by rote, performance practice in jazz, and more. No musical experience is required. Questions and discussion will be encouraged as we put the secrets of jazz performance in the spotlight.
