Opportunities Upon Graduation

The study of jazz celebrates an art form that is uniquely American. Foundational knowledge of this music can lead to additional opportunities in a variety of disciplines within the arts, but also in other fields that rely on an understanding of improvisation, American history, and working with others as an "ensemble" to achieve a common creative goal.
