The jazz band is an ensemble in which students MUST audition to participate. These auditions are to ensure that the student is placed in the appropriate group with students of similiar abilities. Please read and prepare the requirements to the best of your ability so that you can feel confident going into the audition room.
Students will enter the audition room and play the scales as written on the scale sheet. Mr. Grillo will then prompt each performer to improvise using the notes in each scale with a rhythm section. Each student will be assessed on their TONE QUALITY, ABILITY TO IMPROVISE WITH A RHYTHM SECTION, and SIGHT READING capabilities.
