Las Vegas Youth Orchestra

Jazz Band Program

LVYO's Jazz Band is an excellent opportunity for symphonic band members to explore another style of music.

All of our students are expected to practice and prepare outside of rehearsal and spend time using the resources provided, especially audio files and recordings.

 

Warm ups are an important part of our jazz program.  Students learn to approach this activity with two simple long tone warm-ups based on a swing style Bb blues, and a rock style F blues, as well as a jazz ballad.
