Placement Examinations

exams-2

All students applying for admission to the CJC must take two placement examinations: Musicianship (Ear Training and Sight Singing), and Jazz Theory and Improvisation. Placement exams are not graded: they serve to confirm basic required knowledge and skills, and determine appropriate placement appropriate placement in the Musicianship and Jazz Theory series. Placement examinations are administered directly following the audition. The Musicianship placement exam is approximately 30 minutes in length; the Jazz Theory and Improvisation placement exam is one hour in length.

The Word

“John Gove is an incredible professor with extensive knowledge in jazz theory. He teaches theory how it should be taught, which is direct application to your instrument in a playing context. I’ve never taken a better theory class with such a fine professor.”
