New School Jazz fosters individual musical creativity, especially within the environment of small-group improvisation. To this end, all students are enrolled in ensembles whose members are determined by the faculty on the basis of previous jazz experience and stylistic direction. Ensemble performance is encouraged at every opportunity. Depending on their level of achievement, groups may perform at clubs, professional events, festivals, and student concerts throughout the year. All ensembles are professionally recorded each semester. Required for all instrumental students every semester.
