The Major 9’s is the premium Jazz Ensemble hosted at Avanti Music Academy. Our goals within this group are to develop musicianship, effective communication skills, improvisation, sight reading, setting up and tearing down of equipment, and learning combo jazz style. Exclusive performances are included in our larger recitals or showcases, and Jam Sessions.
Auditions are required for enrollment in The Major 9s. They generally take place during our placement auditions each semester but can be scheduled separately. Ages range from 11-18. Ensemble or Jazz experience is necessary. Rehearsals are held weekly at Avanti Music Academy, and take place Sunday afternoons from 3:30pm-4:30pm. Tuition is only $90 per month.
