2023-2024 Jazz Band Audition Info/Rehearsal Schedule
Students will learn the audition excerpt "Billie's Bounce," and then record themselves (in view of camera) performing along with the background track. This can be done from any speaker loud enough to be heard on the video file submitted. Students will then upload their video to this google form.
Deadline to Submit: Monday, November 27th
Measure 4 and Measure 9 may not be possible for everyone auditioning - just leave it out and play as many notes in these measures as you can if this is too challenging :)
