Jazz Ensemble

Ages 11 & Up

With the oversight of some of today’s leading jazz musicians, students enrolled in this class will explore jazz improvisation through training in the traditional instruments of the jazz ensemble, including piano, guitar, flute, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, bass, and drums.

The course covers improvisation, listening skills, musical adeptness and style with the goal of mastering the art of locking into a groove. Additionally, lessons in basic jazz theory prepare students for studio classes during which they play together in jazz style jam sessions.
