EMS Jazz Band

The EMS Jazz Band is an auditioned group comprised of 7th and 8th grade students. This group rehearses after school on a weekly basis from October through June. Students explore a variety of styles including swing, rock and funk through the performance of high quality, grade appropriate literature. Students also begin to learn the fundamentals of improvisation. As an honors group, a strong emphasis is placed on individual development and preparation outside of rehearsal. The EMS Jazz Band performs annually at the both the Roxbury District Jazz Night and the EMS Honors Instrumental Concert, as well as at various school and community events throughout the year.
