Jazz Academy Classes

Jazz Academy classes & camps

Classes at the Jazz Academy are designed to engage all ages and interests, from pre-school children to senior citizens, guitar players to aspiring producers, and students to teachers. From its home at the newly-restored Lincoln Theatre, the Jazz Academy connects people, starts conversations and inspires music making – a place where anyone can listen, learn and play. With nearly 5,000 square feet, the Jazz Academy is a premier facility for multi-generational and recreational music making, ensemble playing, after-school programs, technology instruction and lectures with world-class musicians.
