Jazz Band Alumni Statements
The OCC jazz band really taught me a lot about not just jazz in general, but also how to improvise, and helped me incredibly as a musician and person. The band members I was with I could easily consider to be family to me, and we all grew a lot both musically and with ourselves, which says a lot for a community college jazz band.
