I am going to be the band director at Ashley Ridge High School next year and I am extremely excited and honored to be joining the team at Ashley Ridge!
We are excited to be opening up a jazz band class beginning next year for any interested students. This class is going to explore various styles of jazz music including swing, funk, rock, and fusion as well as provide students with potentially more performance opportunities. This class will meet as a block class for 90 minutes every other day.
The jazz ensemble is open to all band instruments and in order to join the class students will need to remain enrolled in either their band or percussion class as well (i.e. jazz band cannot be your only band class).
If you would like to add this class to your schedule please email me a message as soon as possible with the elective that you would like to replace with Jazz Band.
Thank you so much! I hope you are having a wonderful summer and if you are interested in the Jazz Band Opportunity or if you have any questions, please reply to Mr. Pouncey.
