Private Study - Tom Palmer
Course Information
Jazz minors will take one half hour lesson per week.

Requirements and Policies
All students are required to keep a notebook with blank manuscript paper. A ring binder is the best way to organize your notebook as I will be giving you various handouts throughout the semester. You must bring your notebook and all your materials to each lesson.

Jazz Juries
All students in the jazz minor taking private study are required to take a jury at the end of the semester. The jury is a performance in a jazz combo setting of memorized material you have worked on during the semester. [PLG#1]

Your grade will be based on your preparation for each lesson, assignments, your notebook and your jury.

Links and Study Guides
Students will purchase a legal copyrighted  Real Book. We will discuss which book to get at the first lesson. Text books will be assigned on an individual basis.

You will need to purchase music. It should be obvious that  critical listening to music is essential! Start building your personal library
