The summer is here and it’s a great time to change routines, try out something new and have fun!

We’ve added several vocal teachers offering new courses and workshops and, for the first time, we’ve added student performances for the summer quarter. Check out the variety of performance classes in jazz and Latin styles. We have a wonderful new course that serves as an introduction to the rhythm section. This is not a performance class but will get you ready to perform, perhaps in one of our fall vocal performances courses. We’re also pleased to offer an improvisation class and technique courses that will enhance your overall health and understanding of singing. We have a number of amazing guests visiting from the east coast to lead workshops and our artist-in-residence, Theo Bleckmann, is returning for the one week Vocal Intensive in August.

The summer course configurations are a bit different, so take a good look at the descriptions, dates and times and whether or not they include a performance. The summer classes are 3 weeks long starting in July or August. Some are three hours long, a luxury we can’t provide during the rest of the school year.

We look forward to seeing you at the school. Please feel free to contact me at laurie@cjc.edu for more information.

The Word

“Nowhere else can you learn from such a talented staff in a setting that is devoted to the art form. People at the school obviously care – the instructors, the staff, the other students. Having a welcoming environment devoted to jazz is a powerful aid to those of us just getting started.”

— Harry, Jazzschool Student
