Class Description and Prerequisites

Intro to Jazz is the first step in jazz ensemble for guitar, bass, drum, and piano students.  The class begins with exercises to develop improvisational abilities and culminates in the ensemble performance of a jazz standard.  Performance at MTC Ensemble Night.

Jazz Performance (selected MTC locations) is for intermediate to advanced students.  Songs are selected based on skill and student preferences.  Performances at MTC Ensemble Night and at World Cafe Live.


  • Students are expected to practice in-between classes.
  • If a student arrives unprepared for a class, the student's participation in the class may be limited.

Classroom Behavior and Attendance

Students are expected to arrive on time, listen attentively, follow directions, conduct themselves with maturity, and not be disruptive.

  • Lateness or absence is detrimental to all other students, and is excused only if valid reasons are provided to the director (illness, family emergency).
  • Absences known in advance must be communicated in advance to the school. Disruptive or inattentive behavior in class will be given one verbal warning. If repeated, the child will be seated to observe the remainder of that day's class.
  • If a student is inattentive, unprepared, or disruptive during a rehearsal, the instructor will ask the student to observe the class rather than participating.  Repeated lateness, absence, or unacceptable behavior may result in a student being dismissed from the class without refund.
