Greetings & Welcome to Our Blog,
Bob Mover & Chet Baker in Bern, Switzerland, 1981.
Here you will find weekly updates as to what's happening at Lower Manhattan Music School.
We have many new plans to make this a great summer and fall semester!
As many of you know, in mid April we started a Jazz Masterclass Series. The Masterclasses are every Saturday at 2 pm New York City time.
Internationally renowned Master Jazz Musician Bob Mover leads these masterclasses with the assistance of Issac Raz, who was long time associate to the late Master Musician Barry Harris.
Bob Mover & Walter Davis Jr.
Each class focuses on specific elements of in Jazz Improvisation. We explore songs from the Great American Song Book , as well as the lexicon of Great Jazz Compositions by Ellington, Monk, Parker, Powell, and others.
The classes lead to understanding the melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic options available to the improvisor. Appropriate exercises including PDFs are presented in each class, and students are encouraged to participate in real time. A video recording of each masterclass is provided to all students who register.
Stories and anecdotes, both serious and humorous reflecting Bob Mover's over 50 years vast experience in the world of Jazz are regularly given. Classes often run over two and half hours, because there's just so much to share.
