Jazz Ensembles

Jazz Band

The MSU jazz studies program incorporates both big-bands and jazz combos, giving the student a variety of ways to perform and enjoy America's music.  Placement in ensembles is by competitive audition, and all students playing standard jazz instruments are encouraged to participate.  The finest literature from all eras and styles of jazz will be performed and explored, and students will learn and gain fluency in jazz improvisation.  This ensemble is open to all students for audition and meets on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 12:00 - 12:50 P.M. Please contact  Dr. Matthew Luttrell for more information.
