    JAZZ STUDIES - ALL JAZZ INSTRUCTORS

    Kasey Knudsen, saxophone
    Doug Leibinger, trombone
    Randy Vincent, guitar 
    Ken Cook, piano 
    Cliff Hugo, bass 
    George Marsh, drums

    At the end of each semester, every Jazz Studies major at SSU must perform a "jury" for a panel of faculty. The 10-minute jury performance will consist of one jazz standard from the following list and one item recommended by your private lesson instructor.

    The jazz standard may be performed with a live rhythm section or a Jamey Aebersold-style play­ along recording-the melody and chord progression must be memorized.

    Drummers must perform their jury with at least two other players.

    Your "position" on the list is determined by your projected graduation date-i.e. first semester freshmen start with the first five tunes; a transfer student with a projected 5-semester plan would begin at "2/2." All five tunes from each semester are eligible- the faculty panel will determine which standard to perform.
