Placement Examinations


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 determine 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

“The CJC provides some of the most in depth study of jazz out there. A core curriculum of not two, but four semesters of jazz ear training and hands on jazz theoryand improvisation, culminating in transcription and analysis of the greatest jazz artists of all time. The teachers are wonderful, organized and communicate concepts in a way that clearly transforms each and every student.”
