Auditions

vocal-male

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 on a DVD 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.

 

CJC Catalog
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.”
