Jazz Ensemble

(registration for 2024-2025 goes live on 10/1/24)

A comprehensive program for students in grades 3 through 8, the Ethos Children's Choirs are committed to excellence in choral music in a positive and affirming setting.  While the Ethos Children's Choirs rehearse at Stewarts Creek High School, the ensembles are open to students from any public, private, or home school in Middle Tennessee.  After auditions, children are placed in a choir appropriate for their age and musical development.  Reach out to Dr. Russell at for more information.

The Ethos Jazz Ensemble delves not only into many styles of traditional big band music (blues, swing, samba/latin, rock), but also focuses on improvisatory techniques for every instrument.  The Ethos Jazz Ensemble is open to public, private, and home school saxophone, trombone, trumpet, and rhythm section players from across Middle Tennessee.  Enriching what students learn in their school band class and from private lesson instructors, the Jazz Ensemble offers students the opportunity to play in an advanced big band setting, preparing music at an accelerated rate and learning from other talented students.
