Jazzschool Adult Performance Ensembles

Jazzschool Community Music School

Jazzschool Performance Ensembles delve into a wide range of styles including jazz (standards, hardbop, post-bop, fusion), Latin jazz, Brazilian, blues, R&B and funk. Ensembles are available for instrumentalists and vocalists at the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. Groups range in size from the trio to the big band.

Students are placed in ensembles by audition and requirements may include the following: playing selected scales; playing and/or improvising over a piece of your choice; improvising over a 12-bar blues or other pieces provided at the audition; and sight-reading. Drummers are asked to play various grooves and solo; bassists are asked to play bass lines.
