Jazz

Private Instrumental Instruction Faculty

  • Before beginning studies toward the Jazz BFA, all students are issued a booklet that describes the minimum skills they must develop to demonstrate basic instrumental proficiency. Upon entry, all students are evaluated on the basis of these guidelines. Students placing "in proficiency" (IP) are required to take private lessons with an assigned teacher deemed appropriate to the individual's needs. Proficiency requirements and instrumental faculty are subject to change. Meeting proficiency standards is a graduation requirement.
