Jazzschool-Online Virtual Performance Ensemble NotesJazzschool-Online Virtual Performance Ensembles combine online class meetings, using Zoom, with collaborative web-based recording projects, using an online digital audio workstation (DAW) called Soundtrap. The ensembles do not play together in real-time, but rather build arrangements collectively through a process of overdubbing.
Jazzschool-Online Young Musicians Program NotesScheduling for all Young Musicians Program classes is TBD, based on student scheduling preferences submitted with the application form following each class description. Classes begin the week of September 21st, 2020 and meet for 90 minutes once a week for 10 weeks, with a break for the week of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Jazzschool-Online Technical NotesAll Jazzschool-Online classes meet online via Zoom. Technical requirements include: computer, tablet or phone with a reliable internet connection. Computer (laptop or desktop) is preferred, but a tablet or phone is also possible, with somewhat limited functionality. Optional for improved sound quality: external microphone, either connected via USB or XLR cable to audio interface. For a budget USB mic option, we recommend the Samson Go, currently retailing for around $50 new. Additional technical requirements are listed for specific classes below.
