Learn how to improvise in a jazz setting. The focus is on playing jazz blues tunes and learning how to interact with others to create a jazz solo. Using blues scales and reading chord changes are taught while learning some basic fun jazz tunes. Any level of experience is welcome but an introductory level of music theory would be beneficial. The level of music reading is not a challenge; more emphasis is placed on listening and creating a musical reaction to what you hear.
This ensemble will have a focus on developing a large and diverse repertoire that can be performed at a wide variety of venues. Members of this ensemble will act as ambassadors for the New Horizons Program, demonstrating the joy created by music making and music sharing. Participants in this musically demanding ensemble will be invited to audition. Ability to adapt to a variety of music styles as well as instrumentation will be a factor for membership in this group. The focus is jazz ensemble; arranged music, improvisation, learning songs by ear and from a lead sheet will all be a part of this program. Instrumentation will consist of up to 4 rhythm section, 3 saxophones and 3 brass players.
Think "Canadian Brass" only a bigger group and less travelling! A wide range of brass choir styles will be explored for Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium and Tuba. The focus will be on blending and balancing the brass sound with a fun and relaxed musical experience.
