Lubbock Christian University’s Jazz band, directed by Mr. Isaac Swanson, is open to both music majors and non-majors, and provides an opportunity to develop skills in playing the varying styles of jazz and commercial music encountered by today’s working musician, as well as a platform that encourages the development of skill in improvisation and the practical application of music theory in performance situations.
Auditions for the LCU Jazz Band are open to all students regardless of experience. Instruments include saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, bass, drums, and percussion. Scholarships are available for participation.
Private lessons in improvisation are also available for students who wish to further enhance their skills as a soloist and/or refine accompanying skill as a member of a rhythm section.
