Playing Lead Sheets

About Playing Lead Sheets

For any instrumentalist ready to learn, this practical class will show students how to read and play from lead sheet music. Lead sheets are the main notation format used in musical theatre, songbooks, and jazz standards. They also show you the basic harmonic and melodic ideas that can be interpreted with some freedom by a solo instrument or ensemble. This class is designed for all levels of reading and playing proficiency; advanced students can practice voicing and improvisation during the class. Take the lead in your musical journey – see you in class!
