Jazz Combo Class | Fall 2017
Directed by Dave Laub
This class is open to students who have a basic understanding of jazz styles and improvisation and wish to apply their skills in a comfortable ensemble setting. We will tackle 6-8 jazz standards in swing, Latin, jazz-rock, funk, and blues styles. Difficulty level of the tunes will be based on the group's ability/experience as a whole. Members of the ensemble should be able to read music to some degree and play off of charts... or at least be able to read chord charts and memorize melodies when necessary. I'm willing to be flexible on that if the student is willing to put in some work to learn/memorize material.
The goal is to provide students with an opportunity to play in a welcoming and community-oriented ensemble setting. Willingness to solo is pretty much a must!
Additional performance opportunities come up from time to time; past classes have played for Boulder Community Hospital events, private and public fundraising events, and Mapleton Hill Porch Fest.
