Jazz Auditions

Below are the audition materials for placement into the 2022 - 2023  Highland Middle School Jazz Bands. Auditions for the Highland Jazz Bands occur in September. For each instrument there is a separate information sheet and audition music. In general, those students who perform the best on these auditions are those who are taking private lessons. The Highland Band Department maintains a private teacher list.  Please email Mr. Swartzloff or Mrs. Bollinger if you have any questions concerning private lessons and/or the auditions.
