EAHS Jazz Ensemble
Directed by Paula O'Connor
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:
4 Trumpets4 Trombones
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.
