Introduction to Jazz Guitar

Introduction to Jazz Guitar

This course offers students the first steps to playing jazz on the guitar. We will explore several jazz forms including altered blues, simple bossa nova and standards with descending fifth chord progressions.

By the end of the program students should have a small set of pieces that they will be reasonably comfortable playing in a ‘jam’ setting.
