Jazz Band

Jazz Band

Director: Mr. David Schmuck

Entrance into the Jazz Band is by audition only; all current RHS Band members
who play ensemble appropriate instruments are allowed to audition. Rehearsals
are held during a modified 8th hour schedule on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays.
Emphasis is strongly placed on developing proper ensemble blend and balance, individual
musical responsibility, various jazz stylistic concepts, as well as improvisatory solo skills. Individual
preparation is expected at each rehearsal. As a result, participation in the
Jazz Ensemble is rigorous and requires significant practice. Students are
required to attend sectionals and one-on-one sessions, as deemed necessary
outside of school throughout the year. Students are strongly encouraged to
participate in the Jazz All-Region/State contest. The band performs in concert,
contest, and special arrangement throughout the school year.
