57-454 Jazz Transcription and Analysis

Prerequisites:57-152 and 57-181
Related URLs:

There are few activities an aspiring jazz musician can engage in that are as beneficial as transcribing the improvisational works and compositions of the jazz masters. Every aspect of the student's musical ability is challenged and enhanced. Aural ability, rhythmic notation skills, harmonic theory and function, technique, phrasing, and musicianship are all vastly improved when the student embarks on the painstaking but rewarding process of transcription. The course establishes a framework of basic techniques that help break down this process into manageable goals while moving through the distinct eras of the jazz continuum.
