One of Correia's top Ensembles, Jazz Ensemble is an advanced level group that requires previous experience on your selected instrument. Admittance into this class is through the instructor's selection and/or by audition. In this class, students first review fundamental knowledge of jazz and improvisation then perform a variety of styles including swing, funk, rock, and more. The Ensemble keeps a rigorous schedule rehearsing and performing throughout the year. Festivals, programs, and tours are a large part of the course and participation is mandatory.
