There will also be a brief sight reading segment and an improvisation for 12 Bars of F Blues. You can prepare that with this video here….
Here’s a PDF of blues scales… you’ll have to transpose for your instrument to match the chords in the backing track.
We may run TWO JAZZ BANDS due to the interest shown. More on that to come… but prepare as much as possible.
Auditions will be after school on Wednesday, October 24th around 3:30pm. Rehearsals are tentatively set for Mondays and Wednesdays after school once things pick up. Please communicate with him to work out anything (firstname.lastname@example.org).
