JAZZ WORKSHOP

Jazz Workshop is an intermediate-level jazz course that offers students the opportunity to study and perform a variety of jazz styles and further develop improvisational skills. A strong emphasis is placed on the learning and developing basic jazz vocabulary through active listening, memorization of jazz standards, and basic jazz theory and improvisation. Concurrent enrollment in Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, or Concert Band is a perquisite for participation. All students enrolled are required to participate in all performances.
