Entrance Requirements

Non-Music majors must audition for acceptance into the Jazz Performance minor. Music majors are not required to audition for the Jazz Performance minor.

For non-Music majors, an audition is required for admission to the Jazz Performance minor. Because all tracks of the Music major require an audition for admission, current Music majors will not need to audition for the Jazz Performance minor. Music majors may complete their Jazz Performance minor along with their Music major with careful selection of ensembles, electives, and additional courses.
