SAMPLE AUDITION VIDEOS
To give you an idea of what the KC Area Youth Jazz Audition is like we are sharing sample audition videos with any Prospective Auditionees. Ours is a basic musicianship audition that emphasizes applied performance of practical factors of music and some necessary jazz fundamentals. If you can play your instrument and play jazz well, you have a good chance of being accepted into Youth Jazz. Don't let not knowing all of your scales stop you from applying to audition for Youth Jazz. And, if these videos are above your current musical level, that's okay - get a music teacher to help put you on a path toward building these competencies on your instrument(s). But, if you are ready to request the audition information use the form at the bottom of this page to submit your inquiry.
Some free audition resources include:

2020 KCAYJ FELLOWSHIPS
BECOMING A KCAYJ FELLOW
YOUTH JAZZ will announce the individual names and respective instruments of current fellows along with their home city or town.
Significant music educators like band directors and private instructors will also be acknowledged.
KCAYJ appreciates the fact that most of the leading jazz artists working in the field today significantly benefited from the collective efforts of the entire jazz community.
We believe it is important for balance and perspective to acknowledge the involvement of our music educator colleagues who teach and mentor KCAYJ FELLOWS.
