7th & 8th Grade Strings Ensemble

This year we know that a lot of students won't be able to play with other students because of the increase in virtual learning. We created this middle level orchestra class to provide an opportunity for these students to play in a group setting.

Each day we will spend time:

    • Warming up: Scales, arpeggios, etc…
    • Tuning up: helping develop your ears to tune on your own
    • Technique: you will learn different techniques to improve your skills on your instrument
    • Playing in a group setting: different music of different styles

This class is going to be taught once a week throughout the entire Spring semester. We will be following all required state and county guidelines on sanitizing and social distancing to keep everyone safe.

Come have fun playing in a group! We would love to have you be a part of the class - tell your friends, too!

About:

The Kansas City Youth Jazz Orchestra program was started by Jim and Mary Mair, founders of the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra and Kansas City Jazz Alliance and producers of The Kansas City Jazz Summit and Basically Basie competition.

We will be forming two 14 piece all star ensembles utilizing standard jazz band instrumentation selected from the hardest working and most dedicated High School and Middle School musicians in the region. These groups will be treated much like a "club" or "travel" sports team. The personal and group expectations will be high.

You will be qualified for this group if you have a recommendation from your private teacher and or band director. Aspiring All District and All State musicians are encouraged. Reading, improvisation and woodwind doubling are also an asset.  We are interested in reliable young people who can fully commit to the program for the five rehearsal/concert increments and have a great work ethic and attitude.

Rehearsals will be intense and fast paced but also enjoyable. We are excited to collaborate with Bob Woeppel and his terrific team at REW Music in Lenexa!
