More about Juilliard Jazz

Juilliard Jazz

(Click on the gold letters to learn more.)

Juilliard Jazz offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees and the Artist Diploma. The curriculum combines classroom, private studio, and performance ensemble courses with substantial interactions with jazz masters and multiple performance opportunities in diverse venues around the city and the world. The repertoire studied covers the entire jazz continuum, highlights its American vernacular roots, and emphasizes the social and cultural vitality of the music. The program engages students in the global jazz scene, and they have recently performed at festivals in Amsterdam, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, and the Cayman Islands, and in clubs in China, Italy, Japan, Mexico, and Switzerland.

Recent alumni of the program include saxophonists: Sharel Cassity; Jon Irabagon, Paul Nedzela; Peter Reardon-Anderson, and Erica von Kleist; trumpeters Etienne Charles, Dominick Farinacci, Brandon Lee, and Jumaane Smith; trombonists Chris Crenshaw, Michael Dease, Marshall Gilkes, and Ryan Keberle; pianists Jon Batiste, Adam Birnbaum, Kris Bowers; and Aaron Diehl; bassists Joshua Crumbly, Yasushi Nakamura, Luke Sellick, and Ben Williams; and drummers McClenty Hunter, Jerome Jennings, Ulysses Owens Jr., and Joe Saylor.
