Jazz

Jazz at PMI is split into two sessions. During Session A, students rehearse as a Combo (small group), playing as a rhythm section with horns. During Session B, the group becomes a larger jazz ensemble and focuses on big band repertoire. Students in both sessions improvise, though prior improvisational experience is not required for either session. Students who plan to participate in HYS’ school year program, The Combo, are encouraged to participate in both sessions.
