The class will take place in-person indoors at the MD Campus: Strathmore. Please review our Return to Campus Guide for additional details on our safety protocols.
The Maryland Jazz Band is designed for middle school and high school students new to ensemble playing who wish to study and perform jazz. Throughout the semester, students study jazz repertoire, develop improvisation skills, and build on their ability to work as a group.
All instruments are welcome. Please note: An audition is required for all new students. Auditions for Fall 2021 are held by appointment and consist of C, Bb, and F major scales, a short musical excerpt of the student’s choice, and sight-reading.
For more information, and to schedule an audition, please contact Jeremy Castillo, Chair of Contemporary Music, JCastillo@levinemusic.org and Gary Prince, Maryland Jazz Band Director, GPrince@levinemusic.org.
