Welcome Guest!
Jazz Ensemble

East Rutherford High School

The Jazz Ensemble here at East will focus on the production and performance of several types of music known to the Jazz Repertoire.  We will study Jazz Standards from performers such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and more.  We will also study pieces in the funk, swing, fusion, rock, and twentieth century jazz styles as well.  This will be an ensemble that will encompass a lot of difficult music and hard work is expected.  Standard "big band" instruments will be allowed (Saxophones, Trumpets, Trombones, Piano, Guitar, Bass, and Drum Set).  If you do not play any of these instruments, we may be able to work something out for you to participate in this ensemble as well.  

There will be many performance opportunities for this ensemble and possibly travel, as well as some opportunities for scholarship aid and honors.  I hope any who are interested will consider being a part of this ensemble.  Jazz is the ONLY true American Art Form and I look  forward to advancing its study.
