The Jazz Band is open to all 7th grade students that play a jazz instrument in the school band. This performance group meets Tuesday mornings from 7:05-7:50am. Jazz music is rehearsed while also addressing improvisation. Performances are held in the Chautauqua as well as the Mall of America. Students are expected to be at each meeting and spend additional time outside school practicing their pieces.
Students receive a handbook at the beginning of band, including a registration form for Jazz Band. Auditions are held during the first few weeks of school.
