World-class instructors. Individualized learning. NEC's School of Continuing Education offers Jazz Ensembles with offerings for all experience levels from seasoned pros to total beginners.
Jazz ensembles are designed for instrumentalists and vocalists who wish to work with a complete rhythm section and are formed at all levels.
Emphasis is placed on the exploration of various jazz styles and improvisation techniques. Performances of student compositions are encouraged.
Although registration and payment is by semester, players are asked to participate for the full year so that groups remain intact. Auditions are held each semester during the registration periods.
