Jazz Band

This ensemble is by audition.  Typical instrumentation includes 5 saxophones, 4-5 trumpets, 4-5 trombones, 1-2 piano, 1-2 guitar, 1-2 bass, and 1-3 drums.  Please contact Mrs. Palmer for an audition.  You will be asked to play a couple major scales, a swing etude, and to improvise over a blues progression.  A great resource for practice is Jamey Aebersold Blues in all Keys.  There are some swing etude books, such as one by Lennie Niehaus, etc.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.

Auditions will take place May 21-25.




If enrollment is up, we may have two ensembles.  If you are interested in being in the top ensemble, please email Mrs. Palmer for an audition.  You will be asked to play a couple major scales and a piece of your choice that demonstrates your skill level. If you prefer to be in the lower ensemble, there is no audition, just sign up! 

Auditions will take place May 21-25.



The Lakewood staff will not be available in the month of July. It’s the one month we take off for our families.
