The MHS Jazz Band is a 7th hour class that rehearses on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school until 4:30 pm. Jazz Band students earn an additional credit and grade on their transcript. Jazz is a great place to further your skills on your primary instrument or lean a secondary instrument if you do not already play trumpet, trombone, saxophone, bass, guitar, keyboard, or drums, which are the instruments we have in Jazz Band--Big Band format.
Jazz Band is a great place to learn more music theory, composition, and improvisation. Whether you have previous jazz experience or not, you can sign up for this class if you are enrolled in Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, or Percussion Ensemble--Ms. Sare will teach you everything you need to know, and the more experience jazz band members will be great mentors to you, too!
The Jazz Band is often called on to perform gigs at various locations in the community and beyond!
