Drums will play these pieces with a jazz ensemble mp3 accompaniment.

Drums must also demonstrate 2 additional styles:

12-16 bars of Latin (Bossa Nova)

 * We have a Gretsch Jazz Set that all students may use for the audition. This is the set that they will use in rehearsal for the clinic as well.  Please let your students know that most jazz sets (including the one we play at festival) typically only have one mounted tom and a one floor tom
