Jazz Studies Program


Program/Scholarship Auditions

Anyone who is interested in auditioning for Scholarships to the JSU Jazz Studies program must complete an application through the JSU Website Scholarship Page,, and contact me directly at [email protected].

Those who plan on auditioning will sit in on a JSU Jazz Ensemble 1 Rehearsal, which meets on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3-4 pm. This will be followed by a private audition in front of the Jazz Faculty. 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. Improvisation is not required.
