Jazz Band is a group of advanced musicians that want to further develop their musicianship by learning to play the specialized genre of Jazz literature. This class meets on Mondays and Wednesdays after school from 3:30-5:00 PM and it does meet the A-G University Requirements for Performing Art. All interested in joining are encouraged to contact Mr Emilio Terranova, the VHS Director of Jazz, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VHS Jazz Mission Statement:
The Valencia High Jazz Program is dedicated to providing a safe and encouraging environment for musicians to build their musical skills culminating in performances of authentic and entertaining jazz concerts. Students are often challenged and encouraged to think critically to overcome musical hurdles through collaboration, hard work, and determination. Through this process, students will develop pride, self-confidence, and discipline that can be applied to all aspects of life. Our band room is a friendly, all-inclusive space free of judgment where all members are encouraged to be their authentic selves. Through jazz, we hope to inspire empowerment, excellence, and community.
