Jazz Combos

Along with our two jazz bands, Santa Teresa also has two jazz combos. These combos are smaller ensembles that focus on teaching members about music theory, composing their own music, and improvising solos. Joining a combo is highly encouraged to those who are looking to refine their individual skills and take their musical abilities to the next level.
