Mixed World Ensemble
In this course, students learn to mix the rhythmic heritage of various rhythm cultures with high-level jazz improvisation to produce music that draws from all styles of music without ever being genre specific. Students get firsthand information on the rhythmic and harmonic possibilities of the repertoire and learn to adapt it to the group’s particular instrumentation. The core material usually features compositions by well known composers as well as pop artists, traditional folkloric songs, and original pieces by the group members.
