Jazz Band is another type of class that is another type of music which is what I have in me. Jazz Band is going to be great. I’m going to see my band friends again.

Mr. Williams will be there conducting us to the songs we’re playing, and I have asked him three questions about it. The first question is how many students are all in the Jazz Band? The answer is 14 students in all. The second question is what songs are the Jazz Band going to perform? The answer is, we will be playing Hola Senor Loco by Victor Lopez, Moondance by Van Morrison and Pick Up The Pieces. The last question is what do you like about those songs? The answer is, there are many musical periods and each piece represents a different genre within Jazz when he selects it.

I will be trying out the drums, piano and percussion which are the ones I’m good at. I’m playing Pick Up The Pieces on piano, Moondance on ??????? and Hola Senor Loco on the drums.

These songs will be performed on May 27, 2021 for the annual Spring Concert, and I can’t wait for the Jazz Band to be live on stage. I want to know what it’s like to be in the Jazz Band, and everybody will be proud of us.
