Jazz Band Auditions 9/28/17 & 9/29/17

     Jazz Band is an extra curricular auditioned group open to all 5/6 grade instrumentalists enrolled in either Concert Band or Orchestra. The ensembles will meet on Thursday mornings from 7:15-7:50. Traditional Jazz instruments include saxophone, trumpet, trombone\baritone, guitar, drums, bass, and piano.

 

     Jazz Ensemble is an extra curricular auditioned group open to all 7/8 grade instrumentalists enrolled in either Concert Band or Orchestra (Piano and Guitar are exempt) The ensemble will meet on Thursday afternoons from 2:45-4pm. Modified schedules occur during fall and spring sports (2:45-3:30pm + Friday morning in some cases)

 

  Attending the required weekly large group rehearsals is essential to a quality experience for the student and ensures excellence in the music program. Missing three or more rehearsals or three or more lessons/sectionals can hinder student progress and may hinder the musical progress of the student.  Of course, situations arise and we always encourage speaking with the director to work through this - child, parent and teacher. The ensemble director will notify you if your student has missed a third rehearsal or third ensemble/sectional so that you are aware of the situation.
