Jazz Ensemble Fall Final Exam

Dear Jazz Ensemble Family,  Click link below for the 2014 Fall Final Exam instructions as covered in class today.  Please read and follow all directions carefully.  Please note the days on which rehearsals and final exams will actually occur for the wind players.  You are responsible for making sure you attend the appropriate rehearsal and final exam date.  Rhythm section members MUST be present to accompany each horn player each day (this Thurs. & Fri. next Mon. & Tues.)  This will be factored into rhythm section member grades since the accompaniment does not require as much preparation as the written line for the horn players.

2014 HCJE Final Exam FALL

Thanks to all for a great semester!  We have an exciting spring planned!  Please be diligent about your preparation for the final and have a strong finish to the semester!
