Lakota West Jazz – A Proud Tradition

As the Lakota West band program has enjoyed growth, the jazz program has grown as well. The Lakota West Jazz program started as one jazz band taught after school, and has grown to five high school jazz big bands, which each meet daily during the school day. The bands are under the direction of Mr. Todd Hartman and Ms. Stacey Pease.

Lakota Jazz Bands have hosted jazz greats such as Rick Van Matre, Phil DeGreg, Jim Rupp, Scott Belck, Hal Melia, Drews Mitchell, Jason Webb, Steve Whipple, Bill Burns, Rusty Burge, Jerry Robinson, J.C. Heisler, Joe Jahnigen, Ron Jones, and Karl Kerfoot as guest performers/clinicians.

The Lakota West High School Jazz Ensemble has been selected to perform at the prestigious University of North Texas Jazz Festival and the OMEA State Professional Conference. The West Jazz Ensemble earned a superior rating at the OMEA State Jazz Festival. The ensemble also participated in a clinic with Mr. Rick VanMatre (Director of Jazz Studies/Jazz Ensemble Conductor the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music) at the OMEA Professional Conference.

Lakota West jazz students are consistently selected to perform with the OMEA All-State High School Jazz Ensemble and the OMEA District XIII Honor Jazz Ensemble.

Other performance venues for Lakota Jazz Bands have included the Ohio State University Jazz Festival, the Southwest Ohio Jazz Festival at Miami University, the Beavercreek High School Jazz Festival, and the Lebanon High School Jazz Festival.
