The Word

“The CJC provides some of the most in depth study of jazz out there. A core curriculum of not two, but four semesters of jazz ear training and hands on jazz theoryand improvisation, culminating in transcription and analysis of the greatest jazz artists of all time. The teachers are wonderful, organized and communicate concepts in a way that clearly transforms each and every student.”
