I have an audition for my school Jazz band coming up and I was given an extremely hard piece of swing music to audition with. One thing I was unsure about was the D.S. AL CODA. Does that mean that i go back to the funky looking S sign with the two dots and stop when the other sign comes up saying TO CODA???? Also Swing music is when you play eighth notes un-even right? Like short long short long??? Also moderate tempo...is that like a walking pace??? PLEASE HELP!!!! Thank you!!

When you see DS AL Coda you go to the "funny looking S", then you play to the mark that says "TO Coda" you go to the coda, and play until the end of that. Andante is actually what is defined as walking speed, but I think that you would be safe to say that moderate and andante are about the same speed. At the top of the piece of music does it give you how many counts a quarter note gets?(ex, 61-82) You're right about the "uneven eight notes)
