MUS 1861 Jazz Ensemble

One hour (On Campus)
Via focused study of the jazz repertoire and improvisation, students are encouraged to develop as musicians and improvisers through performance, active listening, and transcription. The instrumentation changes from semester-to-semester but generally consists of 3-5 member jazz combos to octets and nonets. A major goal of this ensemble is developing the skill of self-critique and band-leadership. Two hours of rehearsal each week in addition to performances. This group is open to all JBU students. May be repeated for credit. 

Prerequisite: audition required
Offered on campus Fall and Spring semesters
