Jazz Ensemble - at SPSCC

Spring 2018 quarter

Taught by

  • James Schneider

This class provides the instrumentalist with an opportunity to study, rehearse and perform selected jazz music, and is open to students who have the ability to play a wind instrument.  Students will develop skill in musical improvisation. Participation by “non-music majors” is highly encouraged. Students must have the ability to read music and have basic knowledge of music theory and ability to play a jazz instrument. College drums and piano will be used. Otherwise, students are expected to use their own instruments. If you’re uncertain whether your instrument is appropriate for this ensemble, contact faculty. Students will be placed into different ensembles through an audition process.
