For 7th, 8th and 9th Grade Instrumentalists (2011-12)

Lakota East High School
Concert Friday at 11:15am in the Lakota East Theater

The Lakota Summer Jazz Clinic is a summer jazz experience catered to the needs of the rising stars of jazz! This musical experience will not only share information about jazz styles and improvisation, but can give each student an opportunity to develop self-confidence and gain skills that are both personally valuable and meaningful. The clinic is intended for students that will be in grades 7, 8 or 9 for the 2011-12 school year. Look at our ADVANCED JAZZ BAND flyer for how to sign up!

The Lakota Summer Jazz Clinic is led by Mr. Todd Hartman (trumpet instructor), Mr. Drews Mitchell (rhythm section instructor), Mr. Brian Botdorf (trombone instructor) and Mr. Bill Burns (saxophone instructor). Students will work in both big band and sectional rehearsals in order to maximize instruction. The students will have the chance to show our community what they’ve learned by performing a free concert on Friday, June 24 at 11:15am in the Lakota East Theater. Creating an atmosphere that is fun, exciting and educational is a major part of the instruction and the concert that week.
