Meets requirement, by audition | freshman, sophomore, junior, senior | one-half credit | full year
This class is a performing group, and students are admitted by audition. The class meets once a week on Wednesdays from 3–4:30 p.m., and students study all forms of jazz as well as jazz improvisation, rock, and contemporary styles of music. Because it is a performing group, this class will participate at school concerts, Open House, jazz festivals, and in our community. Because this class meets after school, students may take it as an online class for two of the four quarters. Online work will include tests and practice assignments on SmartMusic software. Students will also meet with the instructor at convenient times throughout each quarter. Students will be required to attend specific performances during each quarter.
