Tour: Teaching
Nov 10 Saturday
California Jazz Conservatory - Berkeley, CA

Clinic

“Ear Training for Songs”

Show More Info

3:15pm-5:15pm
Listen to enough jazz standards and you’ll start to recognize the same recurring building blocks that comprise the bulk of their chord changes. Familiarity with them can make learning songs much easier, and be invaluable in composing. In this workshop the instructor will present a number of harmonic devices found in songs, and work with the students on identifying them by ear.
Prerequisites: working knowledge of music theory and jazz harmony.

Nov 11 Sunday
California Jazz Conservatory - Berkeley, CA

Clinic

“Jazz Scales”

Show More Info

11am-2pm
The number of scales you’re expected to know as a jazz musician can feel overwhelming. This workshop gives the big picture view of how scales interrelate, and how you can think of them as an organized palette, not just a long list to be memorized. We’ll discuss pentatonics, modes of the major and melodic minor, the diminished scale, bebop scales, blues scales… exploring them with regard to constructing lines, brightness/darkness, functional harmony and more.
Prerequisites: Knowledge of seventh chords (major, minor, dominant, diminished) and major & minor scales.
