The Shaw High School Rhythm Teens serve as the East Cleveland City School District’s resident stage band. Under the direction of Mr. Randy Woods, the group specializes in performing an eclectic blend of classic R&B, funk, soul, jazz, pop, reggae, rock, and original compositions. Defined by a sophisticated brass, rhythm section, and vocal style, the Rhythm Teens have participated in dozens of events across Northeast Ohio and beyond. Student members must exemplify professionalism, and are required to maintain high academic standing. Members also participate in rigorous and enriching music-based classes to maintain and sharpen their skills as growing musicians. Professionalism, musicianship, career-readiness, and scholarship are key tenets for the riveting Shaw High School Rhythm Teens.
