Juries (Associate of Arts)
Students are required to take two juries over the course of their studies at the CJC: the first at the end of the first year, and the second at the end of the second year. The purpose of these juries is to evaluate students’ progress in private instruction, and to confirm their mastery of the material covered in the Jazz Theory and Improvisation and Ear Training and Sight Singing curricula.
Students must take a jury when advancing in class level to continue their studies at the CJC. Class level is determined by the total number of credits earned towards their degree: students who have earned between 0 and 34 credits are considered Freshmen; students who have earned between 35 and 68 Credits are considered Sophomores.
