About Jazz Combo

The Jazz Combo program performs live music regularly at school, community, and corporate events. Combo groups play a variety of styles popular in the jazz idiom such as blues, bop, bossa nova, funk, Afro-Cuban, and popular music. All students are welcome to join, especially students who want to learn to improvise in the jazz idiom and play gigs. Rehearsals take place on Tuesday mornings with a downbeat at 8 am.

Though it can be very fun, jazz combo does take work. Students will need to be comfortable with scales, modes, styles, phrasing, reading charts, and transcribing solos on a regular basis. Select students will also travel to performances around Southern California.

In 2017, the Jazz Combo performed at the California Gold Ribbon Ceremony and was recognized by the State Superintendent of Public Education.
