Improvisation and creativity are at the center of this jazz program, where students learn classic jazz songs and an eclectic mix of repertoire. Students learn blues songs, classics from the great American songbook and jazz standards in a wide range of styles such as swing, funk, bebop and Afro-Cuban. Students develop and perform their own compositions, deepen their improvisation skills and gain a basic understanding of jazz theory. This program features a mentorship model, where teachers and students often perform together. Students must have a minimum of one year experience on their instrument, but no prior experience in jazz is necessary—only a willingness to be creative, have fun and work as a team.

Amy Winehouse Jazz Program

Pre-teens and teens explore the world of jazz and improvisation, learning repertoire that includes classic jazz standards, contemporary works, original compositions and music from around the world. Students work closely with professional jazz faculty and perform at private concerts, public recitals and community events. With an average student-teacher ratio of five to one, students receive personalized attention in an intimate group setting. Students enrolled in private lessons at BKCM may be eligible for reduced tuition enrollment; contact our registration desk for more information. Thanks to our generous donor, The Amy Winehouse Foundation, this program is open to all students and need-based scholarships are available..
