Description

This course is designed as a follow-up to  Contemporary Music Performance I  and focuses on helping students further develop their understanding of popular music by having the opportunity to experience music as a musician. Students brush up on basic music theory, musicianship skills, and write, rehearse, and perform, student composed ensemble pieces on a weekly basis. The goal is for each student to be able to understand, compose, and perform original contemporary pieces of music in a wide range of pop and jazz idioms. The workshop meets in a professional, fully equipped music studio, where students have access to a variety of musical instruments. The course culminates in a public recital of musical works written and performed by students.
