New students who wish to join IAJSD for the second semester are required to attend a placement audition on Sunday, December 11 at Grossmont College. Second semester begins January 7, 2017. Click the button below for more information and to schedule your audition.
Tuition alone does not cover the cost of our program. We rely on the generous support of our community to give our students the best jazz education possible. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to KEEP JAZZ ALIVE. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
AUDITION FOR NEXT GEN JAZZ ORCHESTRA
As you may know, Gilbert’s 9am combo has submitted an audition recording to Next Gen Jazz Festival. But did you know that ALL IAJSD high school students are welcome to submit an audition video to become a part of the prestigious Next Gen Jazz Orchestra? There will be no live auditions at the festival this year – all Next Gen Jazz Orchestra submissions will be through the video audition process. Next Gen Jazz Orchestra is where Gilbert got his start playing with Dizzy Gillespie and touring Japan. It is truly a life changing experience! 21 top high school players from around the nation will get the opportunity to play in Next Gen Jazz Orchestra. Will you be one of them? Due date is March 15, 2017. Click the link below for more information:
