Rhythmic Analysis

A solid foundation in rhythm is necessary for all jazz musicians. One year of rhythmic analysis is required for all students, and students may take further courses in the area as electives. Students are placed into a rhythmic analysis class based on their level. Emphasis is on developing basic rhythmic fluency and swing and on understanding rhythm through dictation and transcription. 2 credits
