Jazz Band

The Haltom Jazz Band is made up of 9-12th grade students from the Symphonic Winds, Symphonic Band I and Symphonic Band II concert ensembles. While the ensemble’s repertoire often emphasizes jazz, the group also focus on a variety of styles including big band, swing, bebop, funk, and rock. Students are exposed to standards from 1900 to present time, while learning essential improvisational skills and music theory. Under the direction of Donnie Hull, the Jazz Ensemble performs year round at a variety of school and community events.
