Description: In part three (3 of 3) of this scat singing overview series, Michele takes you through basic jazz theory and ear training exercises for better navigating through the chord progressions of jazz standard tunes. With a general harmonic understanding of how chord progressions work, and a method for learning to hear your way through the changes of a song, you will be able to improvise with more accuracy, confidence and creative freedom. Each topic will be broken down into clear, bite-sized pieces that are easy to understand, along with specific exercises that can be used to continue your practice on any tune. This class is designed for beginning and intermediate level vocal improvisers, but can be useful for all. (No theoretical knowledge required.)
