Online test Jazz History and Research by lecturer Koen Graat
About this assignment:
In Jazz History and Research we will focus both on the past and the present. We will be looking at different jazz styles, key figures, and influential (musical) movements that are part of the jazz history. But we will also make the connection with the present. Students will have to visit concerts and prepare a presentation with a focus on contemporary musicians. All together we will be approaching jazz as music of the present, and not only as music of the past. The course and tests will help you to improve and enrich your aesthetical awareness as a musician.
