New Zealand School of Music Repertiore

Here is a list of the expected jazz repertiore for the New Zealand School of Music Bachelor degree...

I would suggest checking out the youtube version of each song and listening to it until you can play it back in your mind.

A. Learn the Chords

B. Learn the Melody

C. Change Run it (1,3,5,7 of each chord - different combinations for this too)

D. Compose a Solo using Jazz Idioms. Good place to start from is the 3 or 7 of each chord. While soloing, be able to play back the melody in your mind so you don't lose your place)
