Jazz Band

Jazz Band will begin on Thursday, December 13th! Please read the info below and just show up if you are interested in joining!

Rehearsals are every Thursday at Powderhorn Elementary (next to Summit Ridge) in Temp #9 from 4-5 PM.

Jazz Band is a completely optional extracurricular class that is held after school once a week and performs at the April band concert as well as at the Mercury Cafe in May, which is a lot of fun! Anyone in advanced band or orchestra is invited to join on their current instrument. We also need drum set, piano, and guitar players, so students who are not in band/orchestra class but take private lessons on these instruments may also join. If you know someone who plays one of these well, pass the word along! We learn a few new pieces of sheet music that are either jazzy or pop tunes but tend to be more challenging than what they play in class. We also learn the basics of swing and improvisation. It is a great opportunity for students wishing to improve their playing skills. Students are expected to practice their music individually at home and come to rehearsal prepared.

The first rehearsal will be held on Thursday, December 13th from 4-5 PM for all interested students. It will be at Powderhorn Elementary, 12109 West Coal Mine Avenue  Littleton, CO 80127, in Temp #9 (northwest side of the school). Please drop off and pick up students in the west front loop/parking lot and have them walk around the building. Please bring instruments (except drum set and piano). If you are interested in joining but cannot attend this day, please email Mrs. Welch at carrie.welch@jeffco.k12.co.us.

Powderhorn students may use the time after school to practice or do homework in the temp. Students from all other schools will need to find transportation after school.

There is no cost to the student! If you would like to join, please come to the first rehearsal you are available. Hope to see you there!
