Monarch High School has 3 jazz bands. Students are placed into jazz bands by audition based on the experience level of the students. Auditions take place every year in early Spring (late March/early April). All incoming band Freshmen have to enroll in one of the concert bands. If in jazz band, they must also enroll in a concert band or percussion class. Contact the Director of Bands Chuck Stephen or the Assistant Director of Bands Claire Church for questions.
