Jazz Band Auditions for 2020-2021
- SHS Jazz Audition 2020 Alto-Bari
- SHS Jazz Audition 2020 Trombone-Bass
- SHS Jazz Audition 2020 Trumpet-Tenor Sax
Jazz Band Auditions will be held by online submission, and will be open to any student who plays Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Drumset, Piano, Bass Guitar, or Guitar. Even if it is not your primary instrument, we have plenty of students who play a secondary instrument in the jazz band.
In order to submit an audition, create a recording of you playing the music attached to this post in a jazz/swing style. You can look on youtube for recordings of Charlie Parker playing the same tune, "My Little Suede Shoes". Once you have created your recording, email it directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Jazz Audition" in the subject line. If you are going to be new to Jazz Band, feel free to add any Jazz experience you have in the email as well.
Students auditioning for drumset will simply submit a recording of them playing 4 different styles at whichever tempo is most comfortable. The recording should be 8 measures of Medium Swing, Fast Swing, Latin Feel, and Funk.
Students auditioning for Piano should send me an example of something they are currently working on in any style.
I will be accepting auditions now through May 21st. Results will be posted soon after.
