Jazz Ensemble is the premiere jazz course for advanced-level jazz musicians, which offers students the opportunity to study and perform a variety of jazz styles and further develop improvisational skills. Standard and contemporary jazz repertoire are studied and understood through performance and active listening. Students work for mastery of sight-reading skills, developing a jazz vocabulary, and strengthening their knowledge of jazz theory. An audition is required for acceptance into the ensemble and instrumentation is limited to one player to a part. Concurrent enrollment in Wind Ensemble is a perquisite for participation. All students enrolled are required to participate in all performances.
