REMINDER: Due to technical issues our website is currently displaying as it was in October of 2017. Our hosting service is working very hard to get us back to the up-to-date version.

This course provides basic instruction in jazz-related rhythm, tone, style, concept, listening skills, woodwind doubling possibilities and improvisation. The ultimate goal of this ensemble is to give interested students an opportunity to study and perform jazz ensemble literature. Concurrent enrollment is required in High School Band, and in orchestra for bassists. Exception: pianists and guitarists.  Placement in this ensemble is determined through annual auditions that are held late in the Spring Semester annually.
