Thank you for taking the time to check out the Summer Jazzschool Community Music School course catalog. If you are new to the Jazzschool, we are the community education component of the California Jazz Conservatory, offering music education and playing opportunities for the Bay Area music community. We’ve been at it since 1997 and are still going strong!
Courses at the Jazzschool are designed to provide structured and fun learning situations for
musicians at all points on the lifelong learning journey, from total beginners (youth and adult)
to experienced enthusiasts developing new skills or looking for playing opportunities with
like-minded musicians under the expert guidance of our tremendous faculty, all seasoned pro
musicians with a love for passing on what they’ve learned as practicing performing artists
Sign up for an ensemble and get lots of playing time in one of our fully equipped classrooms (with drums, amps, piano, and PA systems in each room), enroll in one or more of our instrumental classes to refine your skills, or start a new instrument altogether! We offer classes for complete beginners in drums, piano, guitar, bass, saxophone and harmonica. We also have lots of classes available for vocalists in our extensive vocal program.
In addition to our weekly courses, please check out our workshop series and information about our numerous summer camps and intensives for young musicians and adults.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly with any questions you might have about our course offerings, or call the school to talk with one of the members of our staff.
