Students found that the more they practiced, the better they became at their instrument, photo by Kena Alvarado More than dark glasses at night, black and gray clothing and big cups of cappuccino, jazz has a rich history in America. From New Orleans flash to California cool, jazz runs the gamut of chic society. The jazz program at the University of Houston brought it all together to study both classic jazz and impromptu jam sessions. UH students that wished to be a part of these jazz classes had to audition for admission, but classes were offered for almost all skill levels. The jazz program at the Moore's School of Music made it extremely attractive for campus musicians. The most unique aspect of the jazz program centered on one musician and his skills, original work, and choice of past works, who then performed with the students. Last year, Conrad Erwick was chosen as the centerpiece for the jazz program. Erwick, a groundbreaking trombonist, was "one of the most outstanding Jazz musicians of our time. His work requires the highest level of skill to play and proves that the trombone can still be played in the modern jazz style that requires faster notes and beats," according to jazz instructor Noe Marmolejo. As is necessary in jazz, Marmolejo cautioned that students who wanted to enter the program "must be able to improvise." The jazz classes involved a wide range of instruments, including trumpets, trombones, saxophones, pianos, guitars, bass, drums, and more. Junior music education major Jaime Peters described how she was introduced to jazz and music when she said, "once in middle school some guy told me I couldn't play the sax because I was a girl, so I set out to prove I could. I plan to teach music when I graduate." While jazz was the main focus for these classes, the pieces chosen by that year's selected musician and students ranged from swing to hip-hop, funk, and ballads. "It's a very strong group of musicians that I am proud to be involved with," said Marmolejo. -Richard Whitrock cacleniics ©ores
