Play and sing in small combos under the tutelage of a working professional. Students develop individual styles while learning an essential repertoire. Development is enriched by public performances in FlynnSpace and at the Discover Jazz Festival. Audition for all new members: January 9 from 7:15-9 pm. Email the FlynnArts Manager or call 802-652-4537 for a timeslot.

For the audition, bring a piece that demonstrates your ability to play single note lines and/or chord progressions, as well as improvisation skill and, sight reading. Students are placed in the four Flynn jazz combos based on the following criteria: a) demonstrating a basic level of instrumental competency; b) age range; c) schedule availability, and; d) instrumentation needs of each group (each combo needs to have a balance of rhythm section and single line instruments).
