Led by Juilliard alumnus trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis, Juilliard Jazz is one of the most exciting and innovative Jazz programs in the country.
Now entering its 18th season, Juilliard Jazz offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees and the Artist Diploma. This is also the first year of our Jazz Voice master’s degree; we are excited for this long overdue expansion into more of the music’s rich legacy. 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.
