Program and Audition Requirements


  1. At least one full year of experience on your instrument
  2. Be a member of your school music program OR be studying privately.

Introduction to Jazz
Students interested only in our “Introduction to Jazz” group are NOT required to audition. Instead, we ask that your private teacher or school band director complete a form that helps us ensure you are ready for the program musically.

Jazz Discovery and Jazz Ambassadors
Students interested in one of these groups may be asked to take part in an audition. However, in many cases we are able to bypass auditions based on our directors’ previous interactions with you and/or the recommendations of other music instructors.

If auditions are necessary, rest assured they are not competitive, but rather for the purpose of making sure you are placed in the appropriate group. Very low stress!
