The Rutgers Youth Jazz Ensemble is open to serious musicians ages 11-18 by audition only. The RYJE performs in small and large-group settings on and off campus. Participants are challenged to grow in new directions during rehearsals that incorporate ear training, jazz theory, and advanced concepts in jazz improvisation.

Continuing students in the Rutgers Youth Jazz Ensemble are invited to re-register without audition.
All newcomers to the ensemble should audition via video, or in-person prior to registering (the free workshop/audition opportunity immediately below is the only scheduled opportunity for potential students to audition in-person).  Please complete the online form found here if you are new to the RYJE and wish to join this year.
