Students enrolled in MUS 272A will be given the opportunity to study, respect, and perform the vast majority of jazz styles and literature. Students will explore a variety of jazz styles and compositions, possibly including swing, Latin, and several others. Students will have guided practice in improvisation, jazz theory, tone production, intonation, dynamics, balance, phrasing, musical, and historical interpretation and performance practices. Students will understand the context of jazz in the broader Black American diaspora and be able to operate in genres directly adjacent to jazz.
