Throughout the semester, students study jazz repertoire, develop improvisation skills, and build on their ability to work as a group.Positions are available for all instruments. Regular recitals occur throughout the year and previous groups have participated in masterclasses with renowned guest artists, such as the Airmen of Note.Please note: An audition is required for all new students.
