The Contemporary Ensembles are exciting groups where students explore and learn to perform more current styles of music including rock, pop, and blues.
During the sessions, students will learn to interpret a lead sheet (melody line and chord changes), improvise, and perform as a group.
The Jazz Ensemble is a great opportunity for students on a variety of instruments to learn how to play jazz and contemporary music in a band.
Students learn how to improvise, build their performance skills, acquire a thorough understanding of jazz harmony and theory, and perform jazz and contemporary repertoire.
Entry is by audition, with students given the opportunity to perform for the Conservatorium at concerts and public performances throughout the year.
