Led by Dr. Bert Konowitz, this course begins with a Master Class and Concert of new and existing compositions that focus on classical and jazz improvisation as a part of traditional compositional forms.
These works-composed by TC composers, guest artists and renowned composers-will be performed by SPIRIT, the TC Resident Improv Ensemble, and distinguished guests. The opening event offers participants musical models that will enable them to begin to create new, original improv/compositions for school and/or professional groups.
This includes sequential exploration and workshop participation in learning and using fundamental skills for composing, conducting, and performing improvisational compositions in the string, band, choral /vocal, piano, and classroom areas.
Each composition will be rehearsed and performed by SPIRIT, with a videotape made for each composer.
