Jazz Band

The Jazz Band is open to saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and rhythm section musicians. The musical focus is on the Big Band tradition and Jazz Improvisation, as well as Contemporary Jazz, Latin, and Rock styles. The Jazz Band meets outside of the school day and performs for on-campus concerts as well as off-campus festivals, and contests during the year.

On October 23rd, select members of the Jazz Band traveled to Decatur HS to compete for a spot in the ATSSB Region II Jazz Band. Of the 18 available spots, 6 students from the Argyle Jazz Band earned a spot, making up a third of the band. These students will participate in the Region Jazz Clinic and Concert hosted by Northwest HS on November 22-23. In addition, 4 students advanced to the Area level and have submitted a recording for the ATSSB State Jazz Ensemble.
