Lincoln Jazz Bands

Starting soon- group information


LJHS Jazz band auditions are coming soon!

Who: Open to any band students who can play one of the following jazz instruments: saxophone (alto, tenor, bari), trombone, trumpet, piano, guitar, bass, drumset, vibraphone/ auxiliary percussion.

Audition: All interested students audition for placement. All wind players will be placed in a jazz band (no cuts), the audition for winds is for placement only! Rhythm players (guitar, bass, piano, percussion) are auditioning for both placement and a spot in the groups. We will make every effort to place as many kids in a jazz band as possible, but there are limits to how many rhythm performers we can have in a group.

Music: Audition music is available in the band room from September 28th through the auditions. Students are expected to take it home and practice prior to the placement audition.

Groups: We have two jazz groups at Lincoln. The Intermediate Jazz Band is our entry level group. This group is a great place to start with jazz and learn the style. The Advanced Jazz Band is designed for more experienced players, typically 7th and 8th graders. Students will need to be well prepared on the prepared music in order to earn placement in the Advanced group.
