CLASS 1: Think outside the Accompaniment Box
Find new and creative ways to accompany a band, singer, instrumentalist, etc. Add cool new rhythms, bass lines, vamps, etc. to your repertoire.
CLASS 2: Improvising on a Gospel Tune
This uniquely American genre draws its roots from the African American church choir. This tradition is said to be the first inspiration for the birth of Jazz. We can make these songs our own by adding a few colorful touches, using blue notes, exotic scales, counter melodies and answering melodic lines.
