Jazz and Improvisation

Creativity and improvisation are center stage in our Jazz and Improvisation program. Featuring an array of offerings for students with no experience to beginning improvisers, advanced high school students and adults who are looking to pick up their instrument again, this program is taught by professional, performing jazz musicians in the local and international jazz scenes.

Musicians benefit from working with teachers who perform alongside students in rehearsals in small groups of four to six students per teacher. Students are encouraged to compose, arrange and rehearse their own music in class and develop their skills as thoughtful collaborators. Students in the jazz program perform regularly for each other in weekly forums, semester concerts and at events both on site and throughout the community. Throughout the year, professional guest jazz artists broaden students’ perspectives with a variety of interactive masterclasses and workshops.
