     Students in the ensemble will attend class during "zero hour"  6:20am -7:20am daily.  This is an academic course.
     
      
    If you're a vocalist, prepare one of the songs listed here as your audition piece. You need to sing at least the "head" or the full song through, then if you want to try to improvise a scat solo, you can show that off too. If you look on the right hand side of the pages listed you can grab the chord charts.
     
    Piano, Bass and Drum auditioners should email Mrs. Tabor for more instruction on how to prepare for their audition.
     
    All vocal jazz ensemble members are expected to be members of at least one LSHS music ensemble during the school day.
     
    Looking forward to a great year!

    HINT:  once you have chosen your song-- LISTEN and really absorb the demo versions.   What is different about each of them.   Especially if you're listening to the instrumental version!   Just listen.  Learn.   That will show the audition committee you're working on the level we want to achieve in WAVE.   
     
    Choose ONE for your audition.  You must be able to sing it without the "demonstration voice" and with the background track.  If the tune/range doesn't fit--- try a different song or speak with Mrs. Tabor in person or via email.
