Jazz Band

Jazz Band

5th and 6th Grade

Meets: Fridays 7:45 – 8:15 (starting November 17, Mr. Peters has emailed out a Sign Up)

   The Jazz Band meets once a week as an extra morning band class for and performs in the Spring concert at the end of the year. It is for those students who play a "Jazz" instrument (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, guitar, bass, piano, and percussion) and want to learn another style of music. Jazz has a very rich tradition in the United States and has a lot to offer to any musician. In Jazz Band, you would learn new rhythms, new notes, new types of scales(other than just the Major scales that we play in Advanced Band), how to improvise(make up something on the spot based off of a scale), and a few more songs than the other Advanced Band students. Jazz is a lot of fun to play and to listen to, I urge everyone to think about joining the Jazz Band.
