Denton High School Jazz Auditions

May 13/14 (in class, current students) and May 13 after school in The DHS Jazz Lab (for new and incoming students) Click HERE to sign up for a time

 

 

 

We have 3 jazz bands at Denton High School. They all meet during the school day. We are very good at working with class schedules, school counselors, coaches, and other organzations. The last thing we want you to do is have to make a choice between your passions. If you don't think you have time, talk to us first and we can look at the situation and examine the options. Sometimes it's as simple as moving an academic class to a later year to create space. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For students not currently enrolled in jazz at DHS:

Audition is not required to be in the DHS jazz program, only for Lab Band 1.

To be in any of the jazz classes, it is required that you participate in band or orchestra class

Students who are not selected for Lab Band 1 will be put in the Denton High School Lab Band 2 or 3 and

will more than likely be put on higher parts.

Student enrolling but not auditioning will be placed in Lab Band 2 or 3 as well depending on our needs.
