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 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.

Is that all it takes?
