Using a simple standard to illustrate the process, John Stowell will demonstrate his approach to creating a chord melody. In addition to explanations of voicings and voice leading, John will play the same tune as a chord melody with two or three levels of difficulty.

Additional techniques will include open string voicings, modulations, pedal points, and internal voice movements. Students will be encouraged to participate and give feedback to create arrangements of their own.

Learn to expand your chord vocabulary and chord melody skills in a relaxed atmosphere.

John will also perform a concert after the clinic with some very special guests!
