Jazz Spectrum

Sponsors:


Green Mountain High School offers a jazz band class that develops techniques for students playing brass, woodwind, percussion, keyboard, or string (guitar or bass) instruments. The GMHS jazz band class focuses primarily on contemporary, stage band literature styles, such as traditional jazz, Latin, and rock. Jazz improvisation is introduced and developed. Guest jazz artists are brought in on occasion to offer their expertise. The group called Jazz Spectrum includes all students enrolled in the GMHS jazz band class. A second group, called Jazz Spectrum II, is currently inactive. Jazz Spectrum performs in at least four school concerts per year and participates in jazz festivals throughout Colorado.

Students interested in enrolling in the GMHS jazz band class must contact the Green Mountain High School Director of Bands. Enrollment may be subject to an audition in the preceding spring semester and/or concurrent enrollment in another instrumental music class at Green Mountain High School.

Personal expenses for students in Jazz Spectrum include a class fee for each semester; black shirt, black pants, black belt, black socks, and black shoes for performances; instrument rental/purchase; and instrument repair and maintenance costs. Green Mountain High School has a limited number of certain instruments available to rent. Please contact the Director of Bands before signing a rental contract or investing in an instrument purchase.
