Group Classes & Ensembles

Discover and explore music in an engaging collaborative setting.

Dig into Jazz at Levine! Levine’s Jazz Program provides students of all instruments, ages, and levels with opportunities to develop their musical skills and explore the art of jazz through ensembles, group classes, and private lessons.

Join us for regular jam sessions, masterclasses, and performances devoted to appreciating and understanding this most vibrant art-form. Whether you are a traditionally trained student who is curious about the world of jazz or you are an experienced jazz musician looking to expand your skills, Levine is the place to develop your talent.

JOIN A JAZZ COMBO

These small ensembles provide students of all levels and instruments with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of jazz and develop their skills with like-minded peers. Students are placed in age-appropriate ensembles based on instrument or voice, experience, and availability.

Each group meets weekly with a member of Levine’s expert jazz faculty who coaches the students in studying and playing songs from the standard jazz repertoire, develops their improvisation abilities, and enhances their understanding of jazz theory and history. Each session meets for 7 weeks, culminating in a live performance on the 8th week. To begin placement, please complete the Jazz Combo Placement Form.
