Great video and approach to demystifying both jazz and classical music. Even though you are going at a gentle pace with the material its still lightening speed and a bit of a mystery to classical players.
I like the idea of ‘layers’ but think it more useful to think of ‘aspects’.. So eg other aspects might be the tempo dynamics throughout the piece, selective use of accents to provide reference markers for other musicians, the profile of ‘swing’ across the choruses ...
Teaching the basic levels/aspects first is important of course, the other aspects just add refinement and group musical cohesion.
Perhaps another example too, in a very simple key would lower the initial hurdles to jump!
We are talking baby steps here in terms of merging cultures (classical and jazz) so we need to go through the equivalent of wiggling, crawling, stumbling about, walking very short distances, walking, running, jumping, sprinting etc
BTW please dont over estimate the average classical musicians knowledge of theory, I’ve often found jazz players have a much better explicit knowledge of theory than classical players, many of whom tend to ‘just read the dots’ which is fully necessary most of the time of course.
Go very gently introducing harmonic analysis. Yes its the foundation of the structure of a piece but many people have great difficulty with the concept of abstracting a piece just to a harmonic progression and then ‘replaying’ it in a different style. So you have to explain and demonstrate the set of aspects that form styles...
Oh what have you started here!!
An adventure ...
All the best BlueJazz
