Join Dr. Jeff Snedeker, Professor of Horn at Central Washington University, for this LIVE webinar that provides an example of how improvisation can be integrated into applied study in a broad sense. It will address obstacles experienced by students who do not have the traditional opportunities to improvise (e.g., a middle school or high school French horn player), and then provide a sequential, progressive curricular approach that encourages all students and their teachers to walk together on a path to wider personal expression and freedom to just play. The improvisation skills addressed are not confined to jazz styles; this webinar will first address improvisation in a general sense and then show how jazz styles can be included. This webinar is directed at all teachers, but especially applied teachers who are concerned about how improvisation can be included in applied study.
Plus a Q & A with the live audience.
