FRESHMAN JAZZ ENSEMBLE
Nic Meyer, Director

Major or Minor
Open to freshmen level 9, major
Prerequisite: previous band experience for wind players, rhythm players will be expected to submit an audition tape of materials supplied in a special mailing following spring registration for the course. Audition tapes are sometimes required from saxophonists when too many enroll in this course.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course, which meets everyday for one class period, provides basic instruction in jazz-related rhythm, tone, style, concept, listening skills, woodwind doubling possibilities and improvisation. The ultimate goal of this ensemble is to give interested students an opportunity to study and perform jazz ensemble literature. Concurrent enrollment is required in Freshman Concert Band or a wind ensemble for wind and percussion players, and an orchestra for bass players. Exception: piano and guitar players. A textbook (Basic Jazz Conception by Jim Snidero) and a metronome are required. Students in this performing group are required to participate in Internet, television and radio broadcasts.
