Jazz Harmonic Techniques for Piano 1

Course Number
ILPN-271
Description

This course begins at a basic level of piano playing, keyboard theory, and harmony. The first half is focused on scales, diatonic harmony, triads applied to harmonic exercise, and composition. The second half covers all 7th chords in root position, an introduction to tensions, and sight-reading lead sheets. This lab is intensive and can be useful for a wide range of students, including those with limited prior experience on piano and students who have a classical background, but limited experience in jazz, theory, and improvisation.
