Welcome to the Pilot Point Jazz Band page! Here you can learn more about the jazz band class, our performances, and upcoming events. Our class meets every day during 8th period and consists entirely of members of the Pilot Point band program who seek to learn, play, and understand concepts of music outside of the marching and concert season. Of course while learning, the jazz program still has a ton of fun playing traditional jazz, big band, funk, blues, and pop music!
