Jazz Theory Class

A Prerequisite for Performing in the Jazz Combo Group

All musicians interested in playing in the Jazz Combo group must first enroll and complete Speedy's 12-week Jazz Theory class. This class will prepare musicians interested in playing jazz by studying important elements of playing jazz and jazz improvisation. Each week will cover a different topic of jazz theory, building upon what was learned in previous weeks.

Musicians who believe they are already proficient in jazz theory and playing may audition for Speedy. Musicians already qualified may elect to skip the jazz theory class upon approval from Speedy. Such qualification implies that you already know and understand all the items outlined in the page on Diatonic Scale Degrees for Improvising on Chords.

Teachers who would like to participate in the jazz theory course are also welcome to join.

Contact Speedy for questions or additional information regarding the 12-week jazz theory class.
