Master of Music in Jazz Studies (M.M.)

The Master of Music in Jazz Studies is a specialized program allowing the student to concentrate in a traditional performance option or commercial music production (instrumental or vocal). Both options develop a high level of performance proficiency in jazz and commercial music styles and expand creative skill, pedagogical practice, composition, arranging and music technology at a more comprehensive level than can be obtained on the undergraduate level.
