Latin Jazz Originals
The Latin Jazz Originals ensemble will study and perform original music, mostly written by Leo Blanco, as well as current and former students of this ensemble. In this course, students will participate in weekly supervised rehearsals. Students will gain experience in performing new original music based on different layers of rhythms, rich harmonies, and melodies. Emphasis will be given to stylistic integrity, as well as melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic accuracy.
