Why Take Online Classes?

Play together, learn together.

Learning to make music, like many abilities people acquire, depends on “doing”. Jazz Night School has proven this with all our performance-based learning experiences within combos and big bands. That’s great because we can learn in the company of others - even more fun and rewarding.

Is that all it takes?

Growing musicianship however requires development of core areas which require individual work. In fact, the amount of solitary time invested and the quality of effort dedicated to developing these primary components of music-making, directly determine the state of our musicianship... more here.

Students are saying:

I really love having online classes, I am taking Jared Hall's class and I'm learning a lot even if we are not together in-person.

I have been amazed that I found an avenue to play an instrument that I love and took up very late in life (55) with instructors and people who are encouraging and fun.

Playing music that I love with other people gives me such joy. I'm gaining confidence, improving my skills, and having fun doing it!

It is great to share my passion with others and work on a creative endeavor through Jazz Night School. I appreciate the positive energy, making new friends with the same interest and finding new avenues to play together.
