JAZZ BAND

Jazz Band is a fairly new ensemble at JICHS. This year, Jazz Band meets during the school day. Students enrolled in Jazz Band learn to play in a variety of jazz styles and how to improvise on the spot, all while preparing for concerts and gigs throughout the community. This year, we plan to perform at the South Carolina Jazz Performance Assessment for the very first time!

PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE

We are fortunate to have a specialized class during the school day for the rising percussionist. Some of these students are also members of our Symphonic Winds and Concert Band. Performing on multiple concerts throughout the year, our Percussion Ensemble is always a audience favorite. In class, students learn technical skills on a variety of percussion instruments, studying genres and styles from all over the world.
