Jazz Band: Stevenson Instrumental Music Program
Jazz Band is a full year (both semesters) advanced class that focuses on improvisation and listening skills in addition to playing and music theory. Members are encouraged to experience different genres of jazz through listening to both recordings and, if possible, live events. Attendance at after school rehearsals is mandatory.
Students perform all different types of jazz styles. They will perform at multiple concerts and activities at Stevenson, at MSBOA State Jazz Festival, as well as travel to Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant for a Jazz Weekend in early February.
In addition, a smaller number of students participate in a Jazz Combo which will also perform at most of the same activities as the full Jazz Band.
