Jazz Combos
Rehearsals | Weekdays & Saturdays

RSC offers multiple jazz ensembles to accommodate adults and children of any ability. All rehearsals take place after school during the week or on Saturdays. Ensembles consist of four to seven players and focus on learning phrasing, communication, and group improvisation. Students are placed according to previous experience and instrumental ability.

Jazz Improvisation – Beginner & Intermediate
Students learn the foundations for constructing a solo in a fun group setting. They also learn basic chord types and scales, as well as ways to create a coherent and interesting solo.
