Mark Your Calendar! A-JAM Auditions - Monday and Tuesday Before Thanksgiving, Nov 20-21

Audition to become part of this year's A-JAM program! Make your appointment today. Auditions are the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving. That's Nov 20-21, 2017. Contact Dr. Katchie Cartwright at 210-486-4828 for more information and to schedule your audition. Check our Facebook page and the Palmetto Arts calendar for breaking news...

Auditions are open to all fulltime students at any of the five Alamo Colleges and Trinity University.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of a college-level course in improvisation. You can be taking one this term, provided you pass the course. :-) If you're not currently enrolled, try to enroll in MUAP 1185: Private Improvisation for Flex II. There are multiple instructors for this course on multiple campuses within the Alamo Colleges system. Contact your music department chair or discipline coordinator for more information.

This year's IASJ international jazz meeting will be hosted by the Viljandi Culture Academy-Tartu University in Viljandi, Estonia. One lucky student will get to participate in this life-changing intercultural experience. It could be you this year!


Auditions for the A-JAM program are held annually--the week before Thanksgiving--by appointment only. To join A-JAM in the spring term, you must have successfully completed a basic course in improvisation, which is offered in the fall semester.

Prepare: 2 contrasting jazz pieces of your choice

Bring: 3 copies of your written music (lead sheets, C-concert)

Scales/arpeggios: Major and minor, all keys
