Jazz Ensemble

Jazz Forum Arts is excited to offer a new ensemble program for aspiring young musicians, grades 5-12, offering them the opportunity to become jazz improvisors!

Under the direction of Ron Vincent and Nancy Kennedy and using a repertoire of blues and jazz standards, these ensembles will give students a chance to learn the tools of improvisation, melodic and motivic development and basic jazz harmony. Students will explore jazz while playing in a group setting of their peers under the experienced guidance of the ensemble directors. All instruments are welcome.

The 12 week program will include a 90 minute weekly class, an end of semester concert for family and friends, and a community service performance at a local venue such as a nursing home, a retirement home or the VA hospital.

In order to participate it is recommended students have a minimum two years experience on their instrument and a basic knowledge of major scales, fingerings and are comfortable reading music. There will be a consultation for admission to help ensure balanced ensembles. We welcome all interested students.
