Jazz Ensembles (All ages)
For all lovers of jazz, Jazz Ensembles consist of a rhythm section, including bass and percussion, and at least one of the following instruments: guitar, piano, brass, woodwind, string, and voice. Throughout the semester, students—kids, teens, and adults—are coached weekly and learn, develop, and improve improvisation skills. The final class of each semester consists of a warm-up rehearsal and performance.
For the fall 2019 semester, we are looking for the following participants to round out our jazz ensembles:
Monday 7:15 PM - Advanced Ensemble
Tuesday 1:30 PM - Advanced Beginner Ensemble
Tuesday 8:00 PM - New Ensemble
