When people think of jazz, they might think of Rat-Pack style bands, playing Frank Sinatra favorites.  Or perhaps they recall an image of Miles Davis playing his trumpet, cigarette slowly smoking away.

Jazz, to musicians though, is a highly technical and exhaustive musical language that requires players to improvise at an advanced level.  And as one might suspect, itโ€™s not the easiest to teach.  

Even great jazz players themselves often make poor teachers, since they havenโ€™t taken the time (nor do they have the interest) to break down – step by step – exactly how the language developed within themselves.

Our jazz teachers here at the Merriam School of Music are such a breed.  Advanced players and educators who have a years of experience in explaining and breaking down the complexity of how to become true improvisers at the highest level.  

Whether youโ€™re looking to explore the blues, jazz, or even get into some more contemporary improvising, these gifted educators are your ticket to this amazing and rare skill.
