The private lesson at the master’s level focuses on developing the student’s artistry. An additional emphasis is the evolution of the student as a musician. Students study jazz etudes with a broad representation of various styles within the wider jazz idiom. This may include sub-genres, such as Latin jazz, blues, bebop, Afro-Cuban jazz, etc. Studies include exercises and song study as students develop agility and stylistic acumen, while also building instrumental skill. Students master advanced studies in stylistic components, such as jazz vocabulary in improvisation, phrasing, and the study of great artists. Students also study harmonic and stylistic practices. This work culminates in the development of a marketable recording, an online presence, and the establishment of the student as a well-rounded artist.
