In light of current pandemic conditions, the Skidmore Jazz Institute (SJI) will be offered online in the summer of 2021. SJI has been called the “non-pareil destination for attentive and engaged instruction in the improviser’s art” by DOWNBEAT Magazine, and we are excited to continue to communicate the traditions of jazz in this new format.
The curriculum has been translated to an online experience that will keep the hallmarks of our in-person program and continue to inspire students even after the program ends. Aspiring young musicians will work closely with our faculty of top jazz practitioners who are also gifted educators. Students will attend daily rehearsals and improvisational classes and receive private and semi-private lessons.
