Hey everyone! I just wanted to share a few videos of my middle school jazz band with you. The ages of the kids are 10-13 and we rehearse once per week (45 minutes each Tuesday morning before school). Let me know what you think!

Big Dipper

Amazing Grace

Brincano Com Fogo (we commissioned this piece to be written for our band this year by my friend and great composer Drew Zaremba)

I've heard quite a few middle and high school jazz bands the last several years as my daughter has progressed, and this group sounds great for their ages! Great job!

I really appreciate that- it's amazing what kids can do. If you leave your ego at home, pick the right music, get them excited, and teach well, the sky is the limit!

I agree with GT. It’s hard to believe these are middle school kids. These kids sound like a really good high school band and you’re doing a great job conducting.
