This summer, the New York Jazz Academy is offering NYC's most popular intensives for teens and adults of all skill levels. Participating students are placed in ensembles that prepare for performance by stressing a combination of reading music, improvising and collaborative music making. Students are given opportunities to visit major jazz venues, clubs, historical sites and visits with popular jazz musicians on today's music scene. Each week focuses on different material, which gives returning musicians a new and exciting agenda with every visit.
