For pianists with traditional backgrounds, jazz is often a mystery. Join Jeremy Siskind for this one-of-a-kind master class, as he demystifies the rhythm, harmony, and forms of jazz — one of America’s great art forms. This interactive presentation will discuss swing rhythm, beginning improvisation, the blues, seventh chords, reading lead sheets, and much more. Jeremy Siskind is an award-winning jazz pianist and Chair of Piano at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. Suggested donation. Refreshments. CDs for purchase.
