Monk for Vocalists

thelonious-monk

New-diamond_06

A jazz vocal course devoted to the music of pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, exploring Monk’s songs, both familiar and obscure, through listening, study, and performance. Each singer will select songs to learn, rehearse with accompaniment, and ultimately perform in front of a live audience at the end of the term. The instructor will provide charts (with lyrics) in the appropriate key, and a professional pianist will join the class in week 4. This course also explores the life and times of Thelonious Monk and his closest collaborators to illuminate and contextualize his music within the continuum of 20th century jazz.

The Word

“A friend persuaded me to take the Jazz Guitar class from Mimi, 7-8 years
ago. That started me on a wonderful journey of learning and enjoyment
of jazz, music theory, ensemble performance, and more.”
