**INDICATES ALL STATE REQUIRED PIECE
1. Auditions at the district level are separate. There are no group auditions. At the All-State level, students selected to the rhythm section will audition as a group, not individually and will need to be at the entire audition. There are no changes in the wind audition process.
2. Students selected for All-State Jazz that are interested in trying out for the honors combo will be required to solo over B flat rhythm changes. THIS IS AN OPTIONAL PART OF THE AUDITION and will be at the discretion of the auditioner and performer.
3. Jazz auditions will consist of the required piece, sight-reading and improvisation (Aebersold: F Blues). To be eligible for All-State students must do all the above.
4. Trumpet players will audition on 1st part.
5. Vibe players will audition on the guitar part (chording and single lines).
WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE those students just beginning in jazz or those who cannot yet improvise to audition for Jazz Band III for the experience. (Trumpets and trombones may do this on a lower part as well).
