2020-2021 TMEA All-State Jazz Audition Material

Audition material for the Region and All-State Jazz Ensembles will be selected from the TMEA-TJEA All-State Jazz Ensemble Audition Etudes and the All-State Jazz Ensemble Audition Audio files.

It is required that each school that has a student or students auditioning for TMEA Region and All-State Jazz purchase a FULL packet, which includes the drum and improv play along recordings. You may distribute the music to teachers and students at your school, but packets should not be shared between schools.

Individual Instrument Packets
