Jazz 101 Listening Session

Jazz 101 returns for the fall!

Jazz 101 is a listener's introduction to Jazz music, as heard through a century of Jazz history. The course is designed for absolute newcomers—demystifying in simplest terms how the music works and how it has evolved. Jazz 101 is suitable for adults as well as middle-school and high-school students.  The course has no test, no homework, no entrance exam, and, in this offering, has no admission fee; just bring your ears! The course has been offered for more than a decade at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and is now being piloted outside of New York City.
