Rob Ewing

As we enter 2017, the Jazzschool Community Music School celebrates 20 years of continuous operation in Berkeley! I’d like to take a moment to express my gratitude to all of our hard-working faculty and staff, our board members, and especially to our students, some of whom have been with us from the very beginning! I take pride in the work we’ve done together over the past two decades, providing a gathering place for this vibrant community of Bay Area musicians.

As I write this note, I’m listening to the incredible Jazzschool Studio Band rehearse down the hall from my office. This group of high school musicians will inevitably produce some of the jazz stars of the next generation. While numerous talented musicians come here to prepare for a career in music, many more players of all ages and backgrounds come to the school simply for the joy of playing and communing in study over a shared love of music.

Whether you’re a long-time student or considering getting involved for the first time —
