Jazz Band is a year-long activity.  It is open to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who have completed at least one year of formal band instruction.  Rhythm section players (bass, guitar, piano, and drum set) must audition for the Jazz Band each fall.  Jazz Band will meet on Tuesday mornings, beginning on Tuesday, September 10th.  Once a student has signed up for jazz band, it is expected that he/she will attend every jazz rehearsal. Please notify Mrs. Watkins in advance if a student must miss a rehearsal. The jazz band enrollment form and rhythm section audition information is available on Mrs. Watkins’ webpage under “Documents for Download.”
