The large jazz ensembles, the Baylor Jazz Ensemble and the Concert Jazz Ensemble, provide students with the opportunity to play the music of the swing era to the music of the cutting edge big bands of today. The Baylor Jazz Ensemble is our premiere jazz ensemble that performs many concerts both on and off campus throughout the school year.

Jazz small groups meet weekly throughout the school year. These groups of between 4-9 students provide our students with the opportunity to perform in the improvisationally based small group setting. It also provides the students the opportunity to put into practical use the information discussed in their improvisation classes, the arranging classes and the jazz history class.
