General Information About Auditions
Wondering what to expect for a typical Roosevelt Jazz student and family?
Read the Overview Information sheet.
Note: Any student admitted to Roosevelt Vocal Jazz for the 2018-2019 school year must commit to BOTH semesters. There will be no tolerance for unexcused absences, or excessive (over 6) excused absences. Students must attend all rehearsals, performances, festivals and fundraisers. Any student not meeting this basic standard for participation will be dropped from the class.
Even with four jazz bands and a vocal jazz ensemble, NOT EVERYONE WILL BE PLACED in a Roosevelt Jazz group. These are special opportunities for those who are truly interested in performing jazz music. You don’t have to be a super-star; just a motivated young musician who really wants to swing!
Participation in summer jazz camps in addition to private lessons is highly recommended. Info on Summer Jazz Camps and Workshops can be found here.
We are tremendously excited about what is happening with JAZZ at Roosevelt and look forward to hearing many young musicians at auditions!
