Jazz Resources and Recordings

Posted by Dean Surface on March 22, 2020 in Uncategorized with No Comments


Good morning Titans of Funk!

I hope you and your families are doing well and staying safe. Such a crazy turn of events over the last couple of weeks but as you all know we will not be meeting up for a while. Luckily, there are still resources available to you for jazz techniques and even some jazz music. Most, if not all of you, should have SmartMusic accounts. When you log into Smart music, you can search their library for jazz method books, solos, and even jazz music! The book we use is called, Essential Elements for Jazz Ensemble and has every instrument available to you. There are numerous jazz method books on here as well as books on jazz improvisation, the process of creating fresh melodies over the continuously repeating cycle of chord changes or rhythms.

In addition to the method book resource on SmartMusic, if you search Chameleon by Victor Lopez it is also on there! Unfortunately the other tunes we were rehearsing aren’t, but I’ll attach links to the recordings down below. Always feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have!

Chamelon Recording here

TMI Mustang Band Zoom Meeting

Posted by Dean Surface on March 19, 2020 in Uncategorized with No Comments


Hi Mustang Band Families,

Tomorrow we have scheduled a Zoom meeting for us at 4:00 pm! You should have just received an email with directions on updating your emails in charms, making sure you are in google classroom, and getting on Zoom. Please read through the following document on the expectations of Zoom meetings: CLICK HERE . Here is the link to our meeting:

https://kellerisd.zoom.us/j/378546309

Just in case here are the directions for Zoom:

Zoom

Zoom is a video conferencing software that all Keller ISD students can access, either on your computer (best option) or on the Zoom app on your phone (a little harder to work with). Your band director will schedule a time for your class to meet and will send out a link to join. In addition to these regular band times, we will offer elective times to join any of the three directors for an elective class not pertaining to a regular band day.

● On computer – Click the link – it will download the Zoom program to your computer and take you to the video conference. Make sure you try this out a few minutes early so the program can download. It doesn’t take long.

● On the app – Download the app first, then click the link. It will take you directly to the video conference.

We’ve been using this software all week to meet with other staff, and it’s pretty cool! You can see and interact with each other. With large groups, please stay MUTED until your band director opens up the floor for questions, dialogue, or performance opportunities.

See you soon!
