This week the Monterey Jazz Festival got in touch and pointed us towards their astonishing collection of lessons from around 200 Jazz greats like Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Wynton Marsalis and many more.
The festival’s Digital Music Education Project put the following three questions to each musician:
1) Who were your primary influences?
2) Which recordings would you recommend to students?
3) What advice do you have for student musicians?
Each interview is absolutely inspirational, offering deep insight into how jazz legends learned their craft! The advice is not only relevant to students of jazz, but to anyone interested in developing their musical sensibilities.
We also have some great educational content coming from the English National Opera! The following tracks offer examples of musical terms, demonstrated through clips from their productions. Ever wondered what the term 'rubato' means? Thought so! Whilst googling musical terms like a person possessed, you can now listen to them too.
