Jazz Alliance of Trinidad and Tobago (JATT) in collaboration with LiveArt Bistro will offer a multi-module improvisation course for all instrumentalists from November 9 to December 15. The sessions will take place at LiveArt Bistro, 5 Albion Street, Port-of-Spain.
Each musician will receive 18 contact hours and will kick off the course study with an assignment relating to scales and rudiments over eight weeks from September 23 to November 8. This is to allow for easy session flow when the lessons begin on November 9.
The areas to be covered are chromatic scale, whole tone scales, major scales, dominant scales, minor scales, sight reading, sticks wrapping, posture, technique, thirds, triads, diminished chords, dominant chords, minor seventh chords, flat five chords, minor six chords, chord progressions, dominant rules, minor rules, 5432 phrases, jazz standards, calypso standards, rudiments, tuning, listening, transcribing, swing, Latin, funk, African, waltz-3/4, bossa nova, calypso-kaiso, rapso and soca.
JATT staged the inaugural TnT Jazz Week 2013 and honoured Fitzroy Coleman for his profound contribution towards global music development. Honoree, Adriel Vincent-Brown, also received a scholarship towards his studies at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, Manhattan, NY.
The course will create a unique forum for musicians to develop and benefit from opportunities as well as to connect and interact with foreign artistes and to share ideas and hone their skills for TnT Jazz Week 2014.
Deadline for registration is September 16. Musicians can contact JATT at 689-4298 or jazzalliancett.org for registration details.
