Jazz Language with JOI 1 (Beginning / Intermediate) will be teaching students to develop skills in improvisation using an exploratory and inquisitive approach. In this class, we will focus on developing confidence and a clear, methodical and fun approach to practicing improvisation. We will expansively explore the jazz lineage through active listening, inquiring about the artistic motives of each artist and relate such experiences to the self. Students will be able to compose, using simple yet effective musical devices on their instruments. We will be addressing communication, self-expression, critical listening, melody, rhythm, harmony, various song forms and the standard jazz repertoire. This unique course will be taught weekly, will be free for all members of the LVYJO, and will be offered to the public at the rate of $10 per class or $75 for the entire semester. This class will be offered every Saturday during the program semester from 11 am-12:30 pm.

Jazz Language with JOI 2 (Advanced) will focus on advanced techniques and practice routines to deepen our understanding with improvisation. We will explore harmonic and rhythmic concepts, listen to music from the masters, train our ears through transcription and jazz standards, and talk about how to turn on active listening while making music. This unique course will be taught weekly, will be free for all members of the LVYJO, and will be offered to the public at the rate of $10 per class or $75 for the entire semester. This class will be offered every Saturday during the program semester from 11 am-12:30 pm beginning January 30.
