Jazz Arranging

frank-martin

A hands-on course packed with invaluable information! Longtime producer, arranger and keyboardist Frank Martin guides students in creating fresh arrangements of jazz standards. A wide range of compositional techniques and musical devices are explored and applied to class assignments including: the use of different rhythmic feels and grooves; reharmonization; form changes; innovative intros, outros, codas and vamps; and alterations to melody and lyrics. Students sing or play selected repertoire in a variety of styles and learn how to make even the most common standards sound new. Prerequisite: knowledge of jazz harmony.

The Word

“I truly appreciate what the Jazzschool has to offer. Having the opportunity to work with a great jazz trio in our classes, the open mic sessions, and the final performance make this learning experience incredible.”
