COVID-19 Protocols

The safety of our staff and students is our first priority as we begin to welcome everyone back on-site. In-person experiences are only being offered to fully vaccinated students. In addition to requiring vaccines, we will also continue to ask all students to:

- remain masked while on site (and horn players use bell covers)
- move into and out of classes quickly to avoid any overlap between students
- make use of the available sanitizing wipes to clean their spaces before and after meeting

Throughout this session, we will continue to monitor and follow local and state COVID-19 protocols.

Here are a few resources we found for masks, bell covers, and specialty instrument masks.

Beginning Classes and Combos go better together!

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.

 Jazz Night School combines great teaching with a real sense of community. I'll be playing music here for many years to come. Thanks JNS!

Jazz Night School is fulfilling a long-held dream to become a better player.

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.

Learning to Make Music

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, vocals, 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.
