JAZZ 5010 - Jazz Vocal Ear Training (2)

This course continues the foundation from MUSL 3110 with particular emphasis on the needs of the student at an advanced level. Aural skills will be developed with the student demonstrating the ability to sing melodic lines, improvise, and analyze chord progressions that will include music through the 1960s and beyond. Students will study advanced transcriptions of major figures such as Ella Fitzgerald, Clifford Brown, Herbie Hancock and others. Atonal sight-singing and analysis of the chord voicings of Ellington and other modern jazz composers and arrangers will be examined.
