COURSE FOUR is designed to establish baseline competencies as an improvising musician. This course is centered on Jazz studies.
The Burnett School of Music offers masterclasses and lessons for all ages and abilities. Featuring effective applied music lesson programs and progressive courses, the Burnett School of Music understands that the art of applied instrumental musical performance is most effectively learned and passed along by experienced musicians sharing knowledge with newer players. We do this by successfully using progressive and unique methods to codify complex subject matter.
