This intermediate ensemble that meets for one period every day
is for performers who need to
develop their jazz performance skills beyond the basic level.
Emphasis is on ensemble skills and style development.
Videotapes and audio recordings are used
to create a formal study of jazz appreciation and listening
skills. Concurrent enrollment is required in a wind ensemble
for wind and percussion players, and an orchestra for bass
players. Exception: piano and guitar players. A textbook (Basic
Jazz Conception by Jim Snidero) and a metronome are
required. Students in this performing group are
required to participate in Internet, television and radio
