Participants of this new ensemble will take a closer look into the music of the early 1920s. Using the groups of Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke as points of departure, the experience will be geared toward playing and performing in an authentic Dixieland jazz style. The offering will be heavily focused on learning repertoire, improvising, and collaborating with others in a relaxed, fun environment. The group will consist of trumpet, trombone, saxophone/clarinet, piano, bass/tuba, and drums. 

Fee: $10 registration fee; $121.50* per 9-week quarter. For students enrolled in individual lessons at Hochstein, each 9-week quarter is $99. Fees are as of Fall 2016.
