The Frost School of Music at the University of Miami has launched a new video series called "Frost Music Masters."

This new project explores intricate musical conundrums, featuring members of the award-winning Frost School of Music faculty, giving tips and showing techniques for those wanting to take on challenging works.

The first video of the series, which officially launches on January 15, takes on jazz pianist Keith Jarrett’s famed composition “Last Solo Final Impromptu,” a song written over 30 years ago.

In commenting, Dean Shelly Berg stated “Keith Jarrett and this composition are an exciting way for us to launch Frost Music Masters. Jarrett is known for his wonderful and improbable melodic improvisational jazz performances, and this song is no exception."

The faculty participating in the first video of the series are the Frost Music Masters of Jazz: Dean Shelton G. (Shelly) Berg, Dafnis Prieto, Martin Bejerano, and Gonzalo Rubalcaba.
