Education

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Institute has transitioned its full portfolio of free jazz education programs to a virtual format. Click here to learn about and sign up for our free virtual summer programs, including the Jazz in America Summer Sessions and our BeBop to Hip-Hop Summer Program.

We believe the best way to learn jazz is from a music master. The Institute follows that philosophy by bringing young jazz students together with renowned jazz artists and educators through its intensive jazz performance college program, and at hundreds of workshops, master classes and other jazz education programs. All of the Institute’s education programs are provided free of charge, with a special emphasis on serving economically disadvantaged public school students and their teachers.
