Potential New Course Offering/Jazz Band

Good afternoon,

Instrumental Studies Course (Current 7th graders only)

Carrollton Junior High School is considering offering a new course for current band students entitled Instrumental Studies. Our goal with this course is to enhance musical knowledge in more ways than the typical large ensemble setting. Course content includes music technology, music history, music theory, jass studies, improvisation studies, chamber music, audition techniques, and learning secondary instruments.

If your student is interested in selecting this course as their second elective, please fill out the Google Form below. All Instrumental Studies students must be enrolled in a band course concurrently. 


 This form does not mean that the student is signed up for the course, but serves as a way for us to gauge the general interest for this course. 

Jazz Band:

We will begin our jazz band rehearsals next Wednesday. The jazz band is a group that is open to all students at CJHS. No fees or auditions are required. We rehearse on Wednesdays from after school until 4:15 in the CJHS Band room.

2/7: 7th Grade Rehearsal at CJHS until 5:00

2/8: 8th Grade Rehearsal at CJHS until 5:00
