Jazz Ensemble Listening Assignments

Dear Jazz Ensemble Family,  Click link below for the Listening Guide, Log, and Assignment template for the Fall semester 2016.  Please NOTE the corrected Log DUE date which was incorrect on the chart handed out in class.  The log is DUE by Tuesday, Dec. 13th.  Students should listen to pieces by the recommended artists.  Artists not on the list must be approved by me 🙂

Listening Guide, Log, and Assignment

Please remember the extra opportunities:

1.) Students who audition for All-State Jazz Ensemble on Sat. December 3, 2016 at Central Hardin HS will receive 5 listening assignment exemptions due to the amount of practice and time it takes to prepare for the audition experience.  I would highly recommend taking this audition!

2.)  Students who turn in ALL listening assignments on time (by zero hour on the printed due date), on the correct form, and receive FULL credit will be exempt from the Fall HCJE Final.  No exceptions! Please understand that “no exceptions” includes excused absences from rehearsal on the due date since each student has the opportunity to submit weekly assignments early and via email.  I would encourage students to do listening assignments early each week and stay AHEAD of the printed schedule.

Thanks to everyone for your effort and time!  We are looking forward to a strong year for the HC Jazz Ensemble!
