We are also very excited to offer NEW classes this fall. These classes expand IAJSD students’ music horizons considerably, as we add such genres as Afro-Cuban jazz, Big Band, and New Orleans-style Brass Band to their repertoires. Students can also round out their performance chops by learning composing and arranging, or join an all-girl jazz band!
