The Jazzschool offers numerous performance ensembles for beginning, intermediate and advanced instrumentalists and vocalists, each of which develops a set of music to be performed for friends and family as part of the end-of-quarter Jazzschool Student Performance Series in Hardymon Hall!
Students are placed in skill-level appropriate ensembles by audition. Audition requirements may include the following: playing selected scales; playing and/or improvising over a piece of your choice; improvising over a 12-bar blues or other skill-level appropriate pieces provided at the audition; and sight-reading. Drummers are asked to play various grooves and to solo. Bassists are asked to play stylistically appropriate bass lines. For more information about Jazzschool ensembles, please contact Rob Ewing, Community Music School Director, at 510-845-5373 x 14 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can schedule an audition online by filling out
the form at: www.jazzschool.org/ensemble
Please note: end-of-quarter student performances take place in the 2-week period AFTER the listed class dates and are scheduled after the start of each term. Please make arrangements to be available during that general time frame for your performance before enrolling in an ensemble.
