Middle School Course Description

Extension Course | Full Year | Open to all MS Students by audition during the first weeks of school

This ensemble is for brass, woodwind, and percussionists with at least one year of private study on their instrument. Although the ensemble will study and perform a variety of styles and genres, jazz music will be at the core of the curriculum. A limited number of rhythm-section instruments (piano, bass, drums, and guitar) will be admitted after being selected through an audition process. Auditions will occur during the first weeks of school. All interested musicians will be placed in MS Band or Beginning Band. This is a year-long commitment.
