Musicality May June with special guest instructor Gaby Cook
Make music your friend. This spring, join Gaby for a in-depth exploration of musicality. Gaby, and a list of musical guests will dive into the music we love — and explore it through guided exercises, conversations, and tons of dancing. Every other class will include a jazz player, and we will discuss questions like:
What are the most common, recognizable patterns in swing jazz music?
What makes swing rhythm unique from other jazz rhythm styles? What are the challenges musicians face when they improvise?
How do you develop a unique style of way of playing?
Part conversation, part listening, and lots of dancing — this class will be a wonderfully unique way to familiarize students with the conventions and character of swing jazz.
