Invest in our commitment to providing the highest quality music education, diversifying our student body, and growing the jazz audience.





The workshop opportunities available this fall are really exciting. For song and lyric writing we’ve got three experts in their field: Lorraine Feather, Mark Winkler and Stephanie Bruce — all very different in their styles and approach, and each having developed a unique body of work. There are two Brazilian workshops with opportunities to sing, first with master pianist Otmaro Ruiz, coached by Catina DeLuna, and then with rising star guitarist Ian Faquini, coached by Paula Santoro. Kat Parra and Murray Low have a great workshop focusing on ethnic roots as a way to develop a unique repertoire reflecting your heritage, and Judy Wexler tells you everything you need to know to make a CD. Most of these artists are also doing concerts and many of them are from out of town — catch them while they are here!

Notable full-term courses include Monk for Vocalists with Andrea Claburn, the return of Sandy Cressman’s Bossa Nova for Jazz Singers and Vocal Improvisation with Carl Oser. Maye Cavallaro, Pamela Rose and I continue with our ongoing classes. Many have ongoing students but there’s always room for new students to join. Raz Kennedy will be teaching two weekend-long workshop intensives this quarter. We are also pleased to offer numerous technique classes in addition to classes focusing on salsa singing, pop, teen vocals and more.

Please feel free to contact me at laurie@cjc.edu with any questions.

See you soon!
