Piano Department faculty member Tim Ray will give an overview of all the important styles associated with jazz piano, including ragtime, stride, boogie-woogie, bebop, Latin, New Orleans, and others. He will discuss the major pianists in each genre and talk about what makes each style different from the others. And he'll demonstrate these differences by performing the same song in each style, a song that everyone in the room will know—guaranteed.
