The Nashville Jazz Workshop is a nonprofit educational organization for the advancement of jazz musicians, enrichment of jazz enthusiasts & promotion of jazz in the Nashville area. This is accomplished through:
-A workshop environment where jazz professionals pass on their knowledge & experience in a journeyman/apprentice situation
-Classes for players & non-players
-Performances to promote community appreciation of jazz
The Jazz Workshop has classes from introductory to advanced - for students just beginning to improvise, professionals wanting to "sharpen their edges," and non-musicians wanting to learn more about jazz. Instructors are Nashville's finest jazz musicians. NJW is now running 18-20 classes per 6-week term. Classes are week nights, with some afternoon classes depending on student interest. All classes are 2 hours a night once a week.
Classes are structured as workshops. This means NO GRADES, AND NO PRESSURE!! Everyone can go at their own pace.
