3 credits 45.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Accurate notation, transcription fluency, and recognition of theoretical concepts are developed through a regime of continual and rigorous assignments, all designed to further advance skills in ear training and theory. Projects begin with single line melodies in varying instrumental registers and progress through advanced rhythms and chord progressions to complete arrangements and compositions. Sources include bass lines, synthesizer sequences, pop recordings, jazz improvisations, and drum solos. Students learn techniques and performance practices of varying styles and periods, and then perform transcribed parts and solos.

Open to Masters in Jazz Studies only.
