Jazzschool Policies

Jazzschool Ensemble Placement Policy

New Jazzschool ensemble students: New students are placed in one (or more) ensembles based on a live audition. To apply for an ensemble please fill out the ensemble application form. Once your application form has been received you will be contacted to schedule an audition.

Students who have previously been enrolled in Jazzschool ensembles: Returning students have the option of continuing in the same ensemble(s) in succeeding quarters without re-auditioning, pending approval from the program and ensemble director. Students who wish to be considered for a different ensemble(s) in a succeeding quarter may be asked to re-audition. Please fill out the ensemble application form. An audition may not be required depending on which ensemble(s) you are applying for.

All ensemble members must re-apply each quarter. An ensemble application must be submitted at least three weeks before the start of each quarter.

Applications received after the published deadline will be considered on an ensemble-available basis.

Note: In the interest of maintaining an optimal learning environment for ensemble members from one quarter to the next, personnel changes may be instituted at the discretion of the ensemble and program director.
