Length of Course: Spring Semester

Pre-requisite: Must have at least two years prior experience on a band instrument or director's consent.

Credit: 1/2 Elective

Course Overview: Jazz Combo is RHS's non-auditioned jazz band class. Although students need to have at least two years prior experience on their instrument, they do not need to have any past jazz experience. This class is open to all concert instruments including non-traditional jazz instruments (flute, clarinet, etc.) as well as rhythm section instruments (drums, piano, guitar, bass). Jazz Combo explores the fundamentals of jazz, Latin, and funk music while exploring important concepts such as tone, rhythm, articulation, style, and improvisation. This group performs at several concerts a year and emphasizes the music artists such as Art Blakey, Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, and John Coltrane. This class meets zero period, twice a week, after marching season is over (usually early November).
