In this class, vocal students are accompanied by a rhythm section and learn how to communicate effectively with the band: explaining the form and mood of the tune, counting off tempos, and assigning and signaling solos, introductions, and endings. They also gain experience in writing out clear transposed lead sheets and making basic arranging decisions. Within this framework, vocal students develop repertoire, stage presence, jazz rhythmic concepts, and simple improvisation skills. This course is part of the required vocal curriculum, depending on evaluation placement.
