Jazz Band is an auditioned ensemble that meets Thursday mornings from 7:15 - 7:45. If you were in Jazz Band last year (2018-2019) you will still need to audition, but from having a year of playing in Jazz Band already you are almost guaranteed a slot. Below are the PDFs for each instrument. Please print off the music for your instrument and start practicing! Auditions will be the 3rd week of classes and will be done before school during homeroom. I know that the music may be a little difficult for a rising 7th grader who has never done Jazz Band before so just do your best! Only play as much as you can and I take that into consideration! People make Jazz Band every year without playing all 5 selections!
Rising 7th Graders: If you do no feel comfortable doing swung eighth notes or do not know how to DON'T PANIC! Simply read the music as straight eighth notes, which is how we have played eighth notes in class.
