All-State Jazz


The Iowa All State Jazz Bands sponsored by JEI have provided hundreds of students an opportunity to interact with America's leading jazz educators and master musicians. Over the years, our Iowa All State Jazz Bands have served jazz students with a "spring board" to numerous exciting careers in the music field. Selection to these groups is by recorded (blind) audition. Students interested in applying will submit recordings of their playing using a prescribed - downloadable - etude, samples of improvisation and scales of their choosing.
