Jazz studies certificate students will explore the principles of jazz and build a deep knowledge that extends to performance and creation. This is a one-year program designed for extended work in an applied jazz performance area.
Students in the jazz studies certificate program focus on a curriculum of applied lessons, ensemble participation and jazz electives. Because studios are kept small, all students at Lamont study individually with faculty and enjoy a wealth of performance experience. As they progress through the program, students develop the skills needed to launch their professional careers.
