Jazz & Rock Ensemble


JAZZ & ROCK ENSEMBLES (10-adult)

Jazz & Rock Ensembles offer the excitement of group playing in a relaxed yet challenging setting. Small ensembles (four to six musicians) explore music ranging from straight ahead jazz to classic and contemporary rock. Improvisation is encouraged, but not required. All groups have a performance opportunity at least once per semester.

Students are grouped by level, age, and musical interest. A short placement audition is required for new participants.

To get started, email Jazz/Rock Coordinator John Purcell at jazzrockbms@gmail.com or contact the office.

Ensembles Classes

Performing ensembles at Brookline Music School offer students the unique chance to work together in a social, collaborative atmosphere to sharpen their musical skills and have fun! Ensemble playing requires members to listen carefully to themselves and each other, building a strong sense of rhythm and meter, and a keen ear for intonation, articulation, and dynamics. Students of classical chamber music will be exposed to new composers, forms, and styles that will expand their musical imagination and knowledge. Jazz, pop, and rock ensembles allow endless group combinations and stylistic possibilities for instrumentalists and singers alike. 

Placement in an ensemble is based off of an informal placement audition. Each group will receive a weekly coaching with one of our distinguished faculty members.
