Can I skip this stage of training?
You can't skip this stage of training.
Each stage of the Training Path follows three steps
The melodies of Levels 9 & 10.
The skills, improvisation, comping, chopping, sight-reading, and ornamentation in these levels.
Participate in a community orchestra and a jazz ensemble. Your skills in improvisation and sight-reading will allow you to easily take part in both of these two musical settings.
At this point in your training, you'll have experienced many different musical settings and styles. You'll have a very clear idea of the style that you want to focus on and devote time and energy to. This decision is based on a combination of factors, including the people, the music itself, and the setting that makes it feel right for you.
Learn the important concepts of each song in Levels 9 & 10.
You'll experience running a 5-day-long day camp. You'll comfortably organize groups based on age and level and make these camps an opportunity for your high school students to develop mentoring and leadership experience.
You'll be planning your year ahead for a balance of easy adventures and epic adventures for your older students.
