All-West Jazz Aux. Percussion Audition Requirements

Reminder of the new Aux. Percussion Requirements approved by the TMEA Jazz Caucus last Spring. All Jazz auxiliary percussionists will be playing two prepared pieces: one vibes (Birdline) and one non-melodic percussion (Shufflin’ Skinz). Also, they will sight read one vibes AND non-melodic percussion (this will be on congas). Then, they will improvise on Vibes: F Blues and Bb Rhythm Changes (in the same manner as the other pitched instruments). In addition, auxiliary percussionist will play the same grooves that the drumset players play, but on congas:
8 bars of swing @ 220
8 bars of funk/rock @ 100
8 bars of samba @ 120
