Anyone who is interested in auditioning for Scholarships to the JSU Jazz Studies program may register on the webpage for the Marching Southerners (http://www.marchingsoutherners.org/apps/scholarshipApp.php). When you are filling out your Marching Southerners application, designate which date you would like to audition for JSU Jazz at the bottom of your form.
Those who plan on auditoning will sit in on a JSU Jazz Ensemble 1 Rehearsal, followed by a private audition. For the private audition, be prepared to play anything that you are already working on, whether it is a transcription, jazz etude, or music from your high school jazz band, just to show us what you can do. You will also have to sightread a piece.
Ensemble Placement Auditions
Placement Auditions for Ensembles are held on Monday, August 22, 10-4pm, in room 105-A. The music is already posted on my office door (105-A). Jazz Ensembles I and II are audition only. Jazz Ensembles III and IV are open to everyone! Combos are decided according to your CLASS schedule.
Good luck, and we hope to see you at the auditions!
