District Jazz Band Audition Materials

Follow this link to find all resources for the 2019 All District Jazz Band Auditions. I will stay after school with students in January to work on pieces and improvisation.

Wind Players: In your submission, you will need to play the “head” (melody) of the piece, then the transcribed solo, then improvise your own solo. Listen carefully to the recording of Walkin’ by Miles Davis to be able to imitate the style of the recording. Once you are comfortable with the written music, practice playing along with the recording and the backing track.

Rhythm Section: There will be audition requirements for Drum Set, Piano, Bass, and Guitar Posted. Each instrument has slightly different audition requirements, so read the instructions and listen to the examples carefully.
