Teen Town Jazz Combo

Ages 12+
Play jazz standards in various styles including blues, swing, bebop, Afro-Cuban, modern and fusion in a small group of 4-8 musicians, comprising brass, woodwind and rhythm sections. Students develop ensemble playing and solo improvisation skills, learn how to express themselves and collaborate musically, and memorize songs, melodies, harmonies and chord progressions. Students also learn basic jazz theory: intervals, chords, basic harmonic progressions, voice-leading, scale theory, and form.  Students observe, listen to, and learn about historical jazz figures, genres, and styles to provide the basis for understanding the evolution of musical trends and ideas.

Teen Town Jazz Combo may be taken on its own without being part of a jazz program.


Minimum 2 years instrumental experience required. Audition required for new students. Contact Robyn Searles at rsearles@jccotp.org to schedule an audition.
