Jazz band students work with John Miller after their performance at the district jazz assessment

The SaJHS Jazz Band performed at the district jazz assessment at Spanish Fork High School yesterday, March 30, They did great, earning a superior rating from the judge. 

Students also had the opportunity to work with the judge for a bit after their performance. The judge was John Miller, recently retired band director of American Fork High School. Students were able to learn more about jazz articulation and styles and who to listen to in order to get better at their instrument. 

Bands are scored 1-5 with plus and minus variation. 1 is the highest ranking, and bands who score 1's are given the rank of Superior. Needless to say, this is a great accomplishment for our Jazz Band. They have been working hard with Mr. Stolworthy and it shows. Good job Jazz Band.

Students in jazz band are:
Zac Anson
Samuel Beal
Derrick Brinkerhoff
Spencer Fleming
Zachary Hunter
Joshua Jones
Kaleb Loses
