This past Wednesday at the Lost Dog Jazz Jam, students from West Middle School jammed with the professional group Miles Ahead, directed by Mike Carbone. Their selection was ”When the Saints Go Marching In,” a tune they've been working on to develop improvisation technique, reinforce music theory chordal structure and form, and public performance confidence.
