Open to all intermediate and advanced instrumental and vocal students. Students prepare and perform original compositions, jazz and Latin standards arranged and custom tailored for the individual members of the group. Besides being a lot of fun, Jazz Ensemble provides students exposure to differing music styles, an opportunity to improvise utilizing major and minor scales, learn about chord structure, and, in a supporting environment, provide an avenue for self expression and creativity on their instruments. This course is also good preparation for those interested in applying for The Suffolk County High School, All-County Instrumental Jazz Ensemble. (Students required to have 2+ years of lessons on their instrument).
