Each year, Carroll typically has three Jazz Bands and two Jazz Combos. Just about everyone who wants to play in a jazz band is allowed to, but to be in the top Jazz Band (Jazz 1) auditions are required. Jazz 1 is the only jazz band class offered as a regular class and it meets both 1st and 2nd Semester.
JAZZ 2 and JAZZ 3 signups will occur typically in December. Then rehearsals typically start in January right after the holidays, and meet weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays right after school, with occasional Thursdays as well. ALWAYS REFER TO CHARMS CALENDAR for any changes to this schedule!
