Jazz Band / Rock Band - Middle & Upper School
The Jazz and Rock ensembles at CA provide students with a goal-driven, community-oriented, creative experience.
The classes have been designed to be primarily student driven; they have input into the genres and even specific songs they would like to focus on. Students are encouraged to use their creativity and the artistic process to develop their performance of the music from learning individual parts to playing and growing as an ensemble. Much like in the academic classrooms, CA’s music program is focused on small groups that allow for greater student/teacher interaction. This also emphasizes the important contribution and responsibility of each member of the group. Each trimester, the ensembles are featured in concert as well as various performances both on campus and in the community.
