A warm welcome to the California Jazz Conservatory!
Forget about trying to compete with someone else. Create your own pathway. Create your own new vision. — Herbie Hancock
Mr. Hancock’s mandate resonates with the philosophy held by the CJC faculty and administration, a team that is one-hundred-percent dedicated to fostering a competition free environment that expressly encourages you to create your own pathway and new vision. And that, of course, is what jazz is all about: self-expression. Our commitment to forwarding your personal artistic mission is our program’s top priority. Our highest aspiration is to provide you with opportunities — both on and off campus — that will have nothing short of a profound effect on who you are and who you will become.
In support of this effort, our long-awaited new campus annex at 2040 Addison Street is scheduled to be completed this fall. Well-situated directly across the street from our current facility, this new addition will house classrooms, practice rooms, a performance venue, offices and a café. Watch for the announcement regarding our opening celebration!
Again, on behalf of the faculty and administration, I look forward to providing you with every opportunity to realize your full potential as forward-looking musicians and conscientious individuals. We are committed to preparing you to go out into the world and make your mark.
Yours in jazz,
