Jazz Small Ensembles offer students a much more intensified focus on improvisation and repertoire.

These smaller ensembles enable students to gain experience in the jazz idiom and to improve improvisation skills. Interested and qualified students from any school in the University may participate.

The ensembles also offer student composers and arrangers the chance to write for various jazz instrumental combinations.
Faculty conductors are: Joe Clark, Kevin Fort, Derrick Gardner, and Darius Hampton.
