Changes to All-State Jazz and Band Auditions
Jazz: Again, a new set of All-State scales and music has been written for this year’s All-State audition. All music, scale sheets, and audition tracks are copyrighted by LMEA and can be downloaded from the LMEA website.
District Honor Jazz Ensemble will use the same audition cycle as this school year’s All-State auditions (2018).
Band: Note changes in the percussion audition and elimination of the bass trombone audition.
