To registar for the summer camp go to:  www. washburn.edu/jazz or click on the “Register Now."

Start tomorrow (Wednesday). Please be early for your times and plan to move ahead if people before you aren't present or ready. The room will be open by 6:40 each morning. Scales for the next 3 days will be chosen from: F, C and Ab (concert pitch). As always, if you have an additional prepared piece, we'd love to hear it. Good luck!

Is coming up on April 8. Make sure you have an original part to play from, for your accompanist and an additional solo part (score if doing an ensemble) for the judge. No photocopies can be used unless for page turns and you must have the original on the stand. Number each measure for the judge's original and label with your full name and 'WRHS'. In many cases, we have the originals at school (if you've chosen a work from our library). If you chose/purchased your own work, you will likely need to purchase another copy. Also, make sure to get your accompanists lined up this week as well!
