What's Included

TJI's big band program focuses on exposing students to classic big band literature from the libraries of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Buddy Rich and the like while simultaneously keeping current with contemporary composers and arrangements. Big band affords students the opportunity to play great arrangements and compositions while working on skills in reading, jazz phrasing, teamwork, and improvising. Levels range from our beginning big band, the Jazz Workshop, all the way to our award winning Ellington Band, with plenty of levels in between.
