Jazz Band is an advanced level group where students study and perform music in the jazz idiom as arranged for the standard "big band" instrumentation of 4 to 5 trumpets, 4 to 5 trombones, 5 saxophones, and rhythm section consisting of at least piano and/or guitar, bass, and drums.  Students will study musical terminology, rhythmic figures, musical interpretation/expression, and playing technique.


The Jazz Band performs multiple times throughout the year for the student body, band concerts, and jazz festivals. Student participation requires previous experience on an instrument and approval by Ms. Anthony.
