Jazz Bands - Overview

  • Sparta High School's jazz bands mission is to promote the understanding and appreciation of jazz and its artistic performance on all levels and to advance the study of jazz/music in college and/or a lifetime of music enjoyment.

    The program consists of two performing groups based on the level of student experience. Blues Sanction (Jazz Band Lab) is the "junior" band for less experienced students. Blues, Inc! (Jazz Band) is comprised of more advanced jazz players. Both groups are offered the opportunity to learn unique styles of jazz and also experiment in improvisation. Band students participate in performances for the school and local community, as well as yearly travel opportunities to jazz festivals and competitions.

    We welcome interested music students to audition.
