El Dorado High School Jazz Band

This ensemble is designed for students who have had at least two years on their instrument and are interested in learning the jazz idiom. Participation in this class requires enrollment in either the Symphonic Band or Wind Ensemble concurrently. The class will focus on acquiring and building on skills necessary to further the student’s ability both on their individual instrument and as a participant in a jazz band. The class is designed to teach the students skills necessary to be exceptional jazz players from the first day, with adjudicated performances happening throughout the year.
