The Gollum 2 Ensemble will be working through repertoire and the associated specific skills and theory points from Jazz School UK Levels 1 and 2. Ensemble members can read more about the different levels in the members area.

If you are interested in joining the Gollum 2 ensemble and would like to know if you have the right playing level, here are some typical Gollum skills:

‣ good instrumental ability
‣ comfortable with swing and simple latin feels at medium tempo
‣ able to tap three against two
‣ know by heart the standard jazz-blues and I Got Rhythm progressions in C F G and Bb (concert)
‣ familiar with modes, dominant-tonic harmony in major and minor keys and with chord construction and chord-scale relationships
‣ know how to use the harmonic minor scale when approaching the ii chord
‣ recognise the dominant II chord
‣ recognise the dominant I and the movement to IV
‣ starting to join up chord tones with lines
‣ able to voice a range of chords without roots (pianists and guitarists)
‣ have some gig experience and the ability to solo for a chorus over a few tunes known by heart.

Not a complete list, nor entry requirements, as such, just a guide to the sort of experience level of most players in this group.
