The Germantown High School Jazz band is open to all Varsity Band students by audition only. Jazz auditions are usually held in November after marching season has concluded. The GHS Jazz Band meets on Wednesday afternoon from 2:30 to 4:00 P.M. during the spring semester and is not for credit. Students are exposed to a large variety of musical styles: swing, latin, funk, ballad and jazz/rock. The instrumentation uses saxophones, trumpets, trombones, piano, bass guitar and drumset. Students have the opportunity to audition for the All-West Tennessee Jazz Band and perform at the Spring Concert in May. Other performance opportunities sometimes occur during the spring semester and will be scheduled in advance. After school rehearsal time is required and absences are not tolerated.
