Jazz Combo


Learn how to play real jazz in the same way the pros do: by improvising.  This jazz combo will take the raw materials of any jazz standard—melody and chords—and use them to craft an original arrangement for a wide variety of tunes from the Great American Songbook.  Never improvised or played jazz before?  No problem.  Take a chance and be amazed by what you’ll be able to do after just one week!

SESSION 2: Every weekday, July 17, 2017 through July 21, 2017, 12:30pm to 3:30pm

Program Details

Middle School ensembles are for students who are entering or currently attending 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.  High School ensembles are for students who are entering or currently attending 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th great.  Recommended minimum experience is either two years of private instruction or two years of playing with a school ensemble. There is a questionnaire on our registration form that will ask for each student’s age and musical experience so that we can organize ensembles with students of similar backgrounds.
