CMC 2017 Jazz, Improvisation, & Cover Tune Registration Process:

Program Dates: Mondays, September 18 – October 30, 2017

Enrollment – NO AUDITION REQUIRED. We accept all instrumentalists (strings, piano, winds, brass, voice, percussion, bass, guitar, etc.) to CMC!

Registration Process: Since we do not hold auditions, we ask students to register to the program through the online registration process where we will ask them to list details about their musical studies and private teacher information. Then, co-directors David and Stephanie Wong will take all of that information and will form the ensembles based on age, previous experience, and their potential to learn from—and inspire—one another. If you have questions about this process you can call us at 614-323-1330
