Event Description

Motivic Development for Improvisation: The Herb Pomeroy Method:
This clinic covers the compositional approach to improvisation that was taught by Herb Pomeroy, who one of the most renowned Jazz educators of the 20th century. Pomeroy had a profound effect of the evolution of Jazz education, evidenced by the fact that In the 60’s and 70’s the Altered Dominant scale was known as the ‘Pomeroy’ scale. I studied with Herb in Boston for three years and this clinic teaches students how to use the compositional techniques of Classical era composers to create stronger Jazz improvisations. Topics will include: The 12 modes of development, drawing motives from different sources, development as the language of interaction, direction as motive, target notes as motives, linear development, note sets as motives, openers and closers, the 10-Level system of Lee Konitz and interaction with the rhythm section.
