Jazz Band is a select instrumental ensemble comprised of up to 25 students who generally have at least 2-3 years of experience on the saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, keyboards, electric guitar, bass guitar, or drums. Students delve into jazz improvisation and a variety of different styles such as swing, blues, shuffles, Latin, fusion, and rock/funk. Students get personal instruction primarily in aspects of tone, instrumental technique, and styles respective to their instruments. Participation in dress rehearsals and performances outside the school day is required. Participation in special projects such as recordings, tours, and competitions may also be included.  Students must supply their own instruments except for drums and keyboard; amplifiers are provided by the school.
