The Jazz Studies concentration offers a high-level experience in a small jazz ensemble and solo performance, arranging and composition, improvisation, and instrumental/vocal performance skills. In addition, William Paterson jazz students have access to high-level, primary source studies available only in the New York area, and to current pedagogical techniques in the areas of improvisation and arranging. A deeper level of study arises from the following: added historical and theoretical background (in the Western European tradition, as well as in jazz); primary source research and graduate-level writing opportunities uniquely available in jazz; current technological innovations as they relate to jazz; and application of these issues to pedagogical techniques in higher education and/or public schools.
