What Students Are Saying

2.92 Average Rating
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!
James from Milton, DE
At The NSJCM, my passion for music has been nurtured beyond my greatest expectations. The curriculum is flexibly rigorous, but still welcoming to hard workers who may lack professional playing experience, and the quality/structure of the faculty is unrivaled. Living and studying jazz in Greenwich Village just makes sense, and The NSJCM is the perfect place for young musicians with great aspirations to go to school.
