  • Florida Bandmasters Association District 19 High School All District Jazz Ensemble Audition Information This audition is for the All District Jazz event being held April 14th 16th, 2011 at Mt. Dora High School. The event is being held separate from the Concert Band to enable the participants the opportunity to perform in both groups, therefore gaining maximum experience in both settings. It is highly recommended that students auditioning for the ADB Jazz Ensemble also audition for the Concert Band as this is our primary ensemble to learn many fundamentals of ensemble musical performance. Both ensemble experiences intertwine regarding performance fundamentals and are invaluable experiences towards total musical growth.

This portion of the audition will be at the end of the audition block to enable each performer the ability to be present in the group setting. Each portion of the audition will work in the following manner:

    1. Random selection of one auditioning member for each rhythm section instrument: Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums, Auxiliary Percussion.

    2. Interchange performers between repetitions to allow for multiple rhythm section layout possibilities.

    3. Perform F Blues (Swing) to determine ability and adaptability of each performer. a. Change Style between Rock and Latin as well on the same F Blues chord

    changes. 4. Perform audition excerpt to determine preparedness of each player and non-verbal

    communication skills in the rhythm section setting. Interchange as needed. 5. Sight Read selected excerpts from substantial Jazz Literature as a rhythm section.

    Interchanging will take place as needed. Piano Auditions: Use the top stave for the melody (right hand) and use the bottom stave for the accompaniment (left hand). Feel free to change octaves and/or voicings as you like. Piano, Guitar, and Bass Auditions: Use the written notes and chord changes as a guide to personalize the parts. Be prepared to play the written portion as well as any embellishments that you may have added to create more musicianship within the part.
