Jazz Band is an exciting performance opportunity for motivated Advanced Band students who are excelling in their regular band class assignments. It is offered as enrichment/extension of the standard Howard County instrumental music curriculum. Jazz band rehearses twice a week before school beginning the second week of November. We primarily focus on learning to play in "swing" jazz style but sometimes include a pop/rock tune or two in our repertoire for fun.

Percussion Ensemble is an exciting performance opportunity for motivated Advanced Band percussion students who are excelling in their regular percussion class assignments. It offers the opportunity for percussionists to get out from "behind the band" and perform music written specially for percussion instruments. Percussion Ensemble meets once a week before school on Thursday mornings.
