Tertiary Jazz Pre-audition Workshop

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Are you planning to audition for a Conservatorium tertiary degree in jazz? Be well informed about the audition requirements and process so you can achieve your best result in this highly competitive field.

Craig Scott, Chair of the Conservatorium’s Jazz Studies Unit, leads this three hour workshop, which includes discussion and demonstration of the process and the opportunity to try a mock audition in front of your peers (this is optional). This is an invaluable opportunity to ensure your optimum preparation for the “real thing”.

Drummers should bring their own sticks and brushes. Drum kit and cymbals will be provided. Guitarists and bass players should bring their own leads. Vocalists, pianists and horn players are welcome. Amps and mics will be provided.

If you wish to do a mock audition we recommend you have a look at the tertiary course audition requirements and prepare yourself as suggested CLICK HERE

Down the right hand side you will see the link to undergraduate audition requirements.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT THIS COURSE The tutor was really good! I liked that he gave very detailed feedback for each audition. The feedback came to be very useful even when it wasn’t my instrument, the broad tips still applied. There was a lot I did not know and I know feel a lot more prepared and somewhat advantaged after getting the insider tips

Craig Scott was extremely helpful and really tested my abilities to make sure I would improve the second time round

This course gave me a lot of pointers in how to improve my playing. It was very nerve racking standing on the stage in front of everyone but I think it’s a good simulator of actual audition nerves.
