Harmony and Arranging Module: Deals with more advanced aspects of jazz music theory and arranging, such as voicing techniques for two to four horns, harmonisation of passing tones, clusters and other techniques. Students may be organised into ensemble-like groups and may be expected to bring their instruments to perform the works presented. Keyboard module: Puts theoretical concepts covered in both the Harmony and Arranging and Aural Modules into practice using keyboard instruments. Aural Module: Consolidates and expands upon concepts and skills introduced in Jazz Music Skills 1, and introduces compound intervals, open voicings, the addition of upper extensions to all chord types, and increasingly complex harmonic structures.
