This course will emphasize learning to play jazz with opportunities for improvisation. This is an instrumental group primarily for brass, sax, drums, piano, guitar and bass. Other instruments may be considered. Music from the swing era of the ’30s to ’50s will be played. Our first meeting will be on Zoom. Depending on CSUF COVID-19 guidelines, we may join Concert Band and meet on Zoom, participate in Performance Rehearsals (Rhythm Band) on Fridays, or meet as a live band in ABCD.
