The instructor provides instruments like guiro, maracas and claves to use each week. As the term progresses, vocal students join forces with the Salsa II instrumental ensemble to develop a full performance set. Representative songs include “Tres Días de Carnaval” (Celia Cruz), “La Rebelión” (Joe Arroyo) and “Brujería” (El Gran Combo). Prerequisites: previous singing experience or basic technique training. All songs are in Spanish, but fluency is not required to participate.

The Word

“John Gove is an incredible professor with extensive knowledge in jazz theory. He teaches theory how it should be taught, which is direct application to your instrument in a playing context. I’ve never taken a better theory class with such a fine professor.”
