JAZZ WORKSHOP

Jazz Workshop is an intermediate-level jazz course focused on the study and performance of jazz standards. A strong emphasis is placed on the learning and developing basic jazz vocabulary through active listening, memorization of jazz standards, 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.
