    All Instruments
    Join us for our first-ever week-long Summer Jazz Intensive at Mannes Prep with the School of Jazz and Contemporary Music. Students are grouped in ensembles and work closely with distinguished performers and educators from the faculty of the school. The intensive features a low student-to-faculty ratio, a nurturing musical community, unique learning experiences, and a completion concert. All students participate in daily ensemble coaching, ear training, and theory classes; they also explore jazz history through a walking tour of the famous jazz clubs of Greenwich Village. The week culminates in a performance by the faculty on Thursday night and student performances that are open to friends, family, and the public on Friday night.
