Please click on the audition link for all of the materials and info.


    The Jazz Bands 1 and 2 meet every day from 6:30am-7:20am. This is a class for credit, that requires regular, on time attendance.

We will spend the first five days all together, getting to know each other, playing through the audition material, setting expectations, reviewing concepts and then from there start listening to auditions by section.
