Jazz Audition Information


Jazz auditions will take place on Thursday, August 22 and Friday, August 23, 2019, and will take place in the Jazz Lab (room 211.) Sign-up sheets will be on the door.

Auditions will consist of sight-reading, optional improvisation (a blues or jazz standard of your choice), and an optional prepared excerpt of your choice that is no more than 1 minute in length. The sight-reading is the only requirement.

Special Instructions:

Drummers: be prepared to trade 4's/8's in a variety of styles. Bring both sticks and brushes.

Vocalists: prepare one chorus of a song of your choice. You must provide either a backing track or a lead sheet in your key.

Good luck!
