Jazz Auditions

Jazz Auditions for the Stillwater Jazz Bands are held each year before Memorial Day for the bands the following year.  They are done in a group setting in which everyone rotates in an out on parts.  All students are given the opportunity to solo and sightread.

INDIVIDUAL AUDITIONS OCCUR ALL SUMMER.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PLAY FOR ONE OF THE DIRECTORS FOR PLACEMENT IN A JAZZ XTET, PLEASE EMAIL US.

The music for this years audition is listed below.  It  includes two standard tunes in their standard key.  They both would be great for you to learn for summer camp auditions.

Billie’s Bounce – Charlie Parker (Blues in F)

Oleo – Sonny Rollins (Rhythm Changes in Bb)
