All students applying for admission to the CJC must audition prior to acceptance. Auditions are held on-site. A live audition is required for all students living locally; pre-recorded performance samples are accepted in lieu of a live audition for students living more than 150 miles from the CJC. After your completed application has been received, the Registrar will contact you to schedule your audition.
Auditions are approximately 30 minutes in length and may be scheduled throughout the academic year. Students must be prepared to perform and improvise over the following tunes of their choice: a medium-tempo 12-bar blues; a ballad; a Latin tune; and an up-tempo jazz tune. They will also be given a short selection to sight-read.
