LMU Jazz Ensemble

The LMU Jazz Ensemble provides a fun environment for musicians of all skill levels to improvise, learn music by ear, and read music. Music of all jazz genres will be learned and performed by either small groups or big band (instrumentation allowing).


There is no set audition for this ensemble. All instrumentalists should be able to play all major and minor scales. Drummers and percussionists should demonstrate an ability to play a wide variety of styles at various tempos. Prior improvisation skill is not required.
