Jazz Band 8

  • Jazz 8 is a continuation of Jazz 7 with an extensive review of basic concepts. Jazz Band 8 meets every day as an Encore elective. Wind and percussion players are selected from the ‘0’ Bell Concert Band and bass players are selected from the ‘0’ Bell Concert Orchestra. Piano and guitar players are selected through audition from the general school population. The primary focus of this group is ensemble playing, various styles, articulation, jazz harmony, scale and chord theory, and improvisation. This group performs three to four required concerts each year. There is a pay to participate fee attached to this course.
