Swinging with the beat
The Rigby High School Jazz band includes 25-30 auditioned instrumentalists who meet before the traditional school day during the "zero hour." The Jazz Band is an advanced music class designed to challenge the student creatively and musically while exploring and developing an understanding of Jazz. Repertoire for the ensemble includes many styles included in the jazz genre along with rock, funk as well as popular and show tunes. Additionally, students will be expected to learn how to improvise and develop skills necessary to become fluent with the jazz language. As one of the more visible performing groups they maintain a busy performance schedule, often appearing at many community events.
