Website offers simple, convenient eGift for community school classes

BERKELEY, California (Nov. 11, 2014) –

The Jazzschool, the community education component of the California Jazz Conservatory, now makes it easier than ever to give the gift of music by offering an online giving experience. At cjc.edu/egift, shoppers can purchase virtual gift cards for Jazzschool courses and workshops. The new electronic gift cards will be easy to purchase and give via email right from the California Jazz Conservatory website. eGift recipients can either print their eGift or email it to the recipient.

“We are always looking for new ways to share our course offerings with new and returning students,” says Rob Ewing, Jazzschool Director. “Whether it is for a current student or a friend across town, you are one click away from sharing the Jazzschool’s many music study options.”
