JAZZ 702 - Gospel Chorus

HC CNDP
2 credits
This course is open to students who desire to experience singing gospel music. It will cover the diaspora of gospel music, including everything from field songs passed on in the oral tradition from Africa, to modern gospel repertoire that can incorporate elements of R&B, classical, neo-soul, jazz, and folk. The focus of this class will be on phrasing, stamina, and three- and four-part singing to achieve the authentic sound of gospel music.Prerequisites and notes: A basic understanding of musical theory is a plus, but not required. Should be able to blend with other voices. Students not in the school of jazz or the conservatory are required to audition; contact the instructor for details.
