Jazz Band

Jazz Band

The Jazz Band is a course that focuses on a variety of jazz styles and may include swing, Dixieland, be-bop, Latin, and fusion. There is an emphasis on theory as it relates to jazz and improvisation and includes various opportunities for performance. The jazz band performs in the community and attends 3-4 festivals per year. Many students create combos and there is enough interest that we may have two jazz bands during the 2019-2020 school year.
