College Band

Hello all! Wish me luck! I've got an audition coming up on Mar 7! I would also love to join the jazz band, but I've never been in a jazz band. What's it like? I'm not too nervous about being in a college band; people will actually DO stuff for the director. Maybe I'm a little nervous about the size b/c my current band size is 15 members. IDK. Gimme some feedback, y'all!

    Hope your audition went well. I think its safe to say you'll be pleasantly surprised what a college band can do, especially against a 15-piece band. Don't let the size intimidate you either. In fact, they're generally a lot of fun. One thing I will say: Show up on time for rehearsal, and if you can't make it, get a sub. As far as jazz bands, I won't spoil the fun... but I'll leave you with this warning... fraternize with the drummer at your own risk!

      Thanks for the encouragement!! I was accepted into the band and I'm really excited about joining the jazz ensemble. Thanks for the advice on the drummer, Ian, but you're a lil' late cuz one of my friends is a drummer (and the ONLY one out of our band who can read music!!)
