Jazz Band provides an opportunity for players to develop improvisation and reading skills, while exploring a broad range of music. Recent performances have included swing, blues and Latin classics, through to modern day pop and funk styles. For many students this is their first experience of playing in a specialist jazz ensemble.


For this term applications are invited from musicians who have reached grade 5 on saxophone, trumpet, trombone, drum kit, guitar, bass (acoustic or electric) and keyboard, with the required reading skills.
