Explore a career with all that jazz.
The philosophy of the Shenandoah Conservatory Jazz Studies program is grounded in the belief that 21st century artists will work in a variety of settings where performing, composing, studio work, and teaching are important components of a successful musician’s overall career. Students are trained in areas of technology, performance and jazz teaching techniques as they prepare for evolving career opportunities. The Jazz Studies program prepares musicians as performers and arrangers in the broad field of contemporary music, which includes jazz, popular, commercial, classical and studio music.
