Jazz Lab is an intermediate-level course designed to offer the qualified instrumentalist the opportunity to study and perform a variety of jazz styles and further develop jazz skills. Concurrent enrollment in Wind Ensemble or Concert Band is a perquisite for participation. The various styles and trends of jazz are studied and understood through performance and active listening. Students will work for mastery of music reading skills, develop a jazz vocabulary, beginning jazz theory and performance skills. All students enrolled are required to participate in all performances. We rehearse twice a week during the Advisory time period.
