Register NowThe Anna Maria College Jazz Institute aims to cultivate a comprehensive, foundational skillset within each student, allowing him or her to pursue any future musical goal without restriction. This concept of “complete musicianship” will be explored through a well-balanced, integrated course design with classes in applied theory, aural skills, and repertoire. Students will become aware of their strengths and utilize those strengths to gain understanding in subjects that are less familiar. The benefit of “complete musicianship” affords students the luxury of avoiding the pitfalls, ruts, and plateaus commonly found in traditional methodology.
 
It is for this very reason why the Jazz Institute should not be viewed as being reserved solely for those interested in jazz. It is available and beneficial to all those looking to gain greater musical freedom.
