Tiger Jazz Ensemble

This ensemble is an advanced, enrichment course that explores those styles of music not normally associated with the concert or marching bands. Students will trace the jazz influence on all forms of music, with added emphasis on music in the style of the “Big Band Era.” The focus of this ensemble will be on jazz styles, and skills needed for jazz improvisation. Students who successfully audition into this class and complete the course requirements will receive a semester of academic credit. This class meets during period 1 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
