There are no living accommodations available through the California Jazz Conservatory at this time. The CJC is not responsible for finding or assisting a student in finding housing. CJC students are responsible for making arrangements for their own housing. The CJC is located within easy walking distance of a number of student friendly apartment complexes in downtown Berkeley and the nearby vicinity and is also easily accessible by BART for students who wish to live outside of the city. As of January 2016, average monthly apartment rent in Berkeley ranged from $1,945 for a studio; $2,200 for a one-bedroom; and $3,175 for a two-bedroom apartment.

The Word

“John Gove is an incredible professor with extensive knowledge in jazz theory. He teaches theory how it should be taught, which is direct application to your instrument in a playing context. I’ve never taken a better theory class with such a fine professor.”
