Jazz Ensembles and Rock Bands offer the excitement of making music with like-minded musicians in an engaging and motivating group setting. Small ensembles of four to six musicians explore music ranging from jazz standards to classic and contemporary rock. Improvisation is encouraged, but not required. All groups have a performance opportunity at least once per semester.
BMS Jazz Ensembles & Rock Bands are generally appropriate for students ages 10 and up who have had at least 2 years of private instruction on their instrument. Students are grouped by level, age, and musical interest. Younger and/or less experienced students will be considered with a private teacher recommendation and/or a placement audition. A brief placement session with the Jazz/Rock coordinator is required for all new participants.
Please note: The Jazz Ensembles & Rock Bands Fall 2022 Term will be 14 weeks. After you register online, the Jazz/Rock Coordinator will contact you to confirm an available time slot that will become your regularly scheduled time.
