In this weekly small group ensemble, jazz musicians at an intermediate level have the opportunity to collaborate, improvise, rehearse and develop the confidence for public performance. Working with a professional jazz musician coach, students work within a classic jazz repertoire highlighting blues forms and standards from the American songbook, while digging deep into the world of jazz improvisation.

BKCM offers a wide range of ensembles for students of all ages, levels and experience. Students are motivated to practice repertoire outside of class and encouraged by their peers to take on new challenges.
