    Jazz Ensemble is a select group of students based on student ability, work ethic, teacher recommendation, audition,  and needed instrumentation to complete the ensemble.

    As an ensemble, we prepare music for upcoming concerts and performances throughout the school year. Jazz ensemble performs Big Band music, Smooth Jazz, Hits of today, and more.

    Students are encouraged to take private lessons to enhance their musicianship and to further study improvisation.

    Instrumentation for this group is limited and include the following:

    5 Saxophones
    4 Trumpets
    4 Trombones
    2 Piano
    2 Guitar
    1 Electric Bass
    1 Upright Bass
    2 Drum Set players

    ****In addition,  each musician is responsible for learning his/her own music, since I do not double up on parts.****

    The music that this group plays is at a Medium to Medium-Advanced level and individual practice is required.
    Concert dates:

    Winter Concert: December, Prism Concert in March, and
    a Spring Concert in May  ----other performances will occur throughout the school year.  We also participate and compete at the Springville Pageant of Bands each year.
