Excellence at Richards: Jazz Champs at Work

Our third and final video of the Jazz Ensemble from Richards High School offers more details on just how musicians grow.

Band director Charles Martin, an accomplished professional saxophone player, again stops his students in the middle of a piece to tell them what they need to change. 

It's instructive to watch him work — and also offers a glimpse into the environment that produces excellence.  This year, Jazz Ensemble won top honors at the Lincoln-Way Central Jazz Festival.
