What Students Are Saying

2.92 Average Rating
The faculty are incredible and want to give you the tools to help you succeed as a musician. The location is ideal, with several jazz clubs in the area and subway access nearby. Get ready to be in a whole lot of debt unless you receive a huge scholarship or are a wealthy.
from Los Angeles, CA
This program is simply amazing. So many incredible teachers and fellow students you will meet; the community is just wonderful. Highly recommended for students seeking to develop their own voice in the Jazz capital of the world!
