The “Lafayette Jazz Band” is the primary performing group and its members must be able to demonstrate a high proficiency on their instrument in order to meet the challenge that is created by this type of music. The course covers different jazz band styles and works on the development of improvisation by each member. Several performances are given during the year for school activities and community groups, including the Annual Jazz Band Dance and a dinner performance at The Lafayette Club, one of the city’s finest private dining establishments.
The “Jazz Lab Band” provides an opportunity for training and development of those students who are interested in this genre of music and performance style, with the objective to move quickly into the advanced group and its repertoire of music and event schedule.
