Jazz Band


This ensemble is open to advanced 6th-8thgraders at JFK. Students will learn basic jazz/swing rhythms, blues scales, and have the opportunity to try basic improvisation. Instrumentation is open to woodwinds, brass, drums, piano, bass, and guitar. This ensemble rehearses once a week and has two concerts a year (Winter and Spring). Occasionally the Jazz Band is asked to perform other local gigs as well. Private lessons are strongly encouraged for members of this ensemble, but not required.
