The Columbus Community Jazz Band is the chance for anyone who has played an instrument to get back in the swing of things! Led by some of Columbus’ finest musicians, the CCJB performs jazz classics in a fun and engaging environment.


The CCJB has always been first and foremost, a tight-knit community of jazz lovers and enthusiasts. We are excited to keep this community together with a series of online sessions led by renowned Columbus saxophonist, performer, and educator, Bryan Olsheski. This session led by Bryan will be themed around the music of Miles Davis. During each class, you will listen and learn about the performance and improvisation techniques within Miles Davis’ music. This will be a great opportunity to learn about Miles’ vast music career and the inner workings of his music, while also playing some selections.


Whether you are a new or past participant of the band, we invite you to listen, learn, and play with us in this special edition of the CCJB. Bring your instrument to play along, or simply sit in on our sessions to learn more about the music. Our meetings will take place via the Zoom Video Conference app each week.


This ensemble is open to any instrumentalist, vocalist, or non-musician who loves jazz and wants to learn more.

Online Registration is now open.
