For those with a good knowledge of the basics, the course will concentrate on learning to play jazz standards (old & new) while working on helping you to develop your chord playing and soloing. Reading music is not necessary but you need to have at least mastered bar chords and a few basic blues progressions. The class will also allow more advanced students to work on more challenging areas of jazz playing.
