The Real Deal: Understanding Jazz Styles Through Real-Time Demonstration
- This clinic will provide a “real-time” or live demonstration by the Capital University Faculty Jazz Ensemble of various jazz, or jazz-related styles. This clinic will assist the educator in stripping away some of the mystery behind jazz styles by presenting fundamental guidelines for performance for ensembles of all levels. Demonstrations will include focusing upon the differences in core elements: vibrato, articulations, eighth-note interpretations, rhythm section style, etc.
