Jazz Band

  • Open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade band members on any instrument.  No audition required. Students will learn the basic fundamentals of how to succeed as a jazz musician. Students will play their instruments and learn basic characteristics of jazz style, articulations, rhythms, tone, and swing feel. Student musicians will work on different jazz projects including solo transcriptions, jazz etudes, and big band literature. By the end of the club the students will participate in a recording session to put together a virtual performance to share with the community.
