Throughout the year, NYJW provides a proven methodology for learning jazz through ear training; melodic, harmonic and rhythmic exercises; and a combination of individual and group performances, taught by faculty members who combine excellent teaching skills with impressive jazz credentials, in jazz-rich, musically New York City, with its lively performance and jam session scene.
