Jazz Band is starting Tuesday, October 25 with an informational meeting in the music room from 2:45-3:15. Students receiving permission from their parents will then meet each Tuesday from 2:45-3:45. Students will be in Parent Pick Up at 3:45. Parents will need to provide transportation at this time or give their students permission to walk or ride a bike home.
We will be learning about jazz, focusing on the Jazz/Blues scale, improvisation, and learning jazz charts. We have one date for performance at this time, May 3rd with the Sanborn Band. Other dates will be announced as they are set.
Ms. Lim, our orchestra director, will be co-sponsoring Jazz Band this year. We look forward to working with your young musicians.
Jazz Band is open to any Sanborn 5th or 6th grader who is currently enrolled in band or orchestra or who is taking private lessons in drums, piano, guitar, or electric bass.
