Jazz Studies Ensembles

The Kent State Jazz Studies Program fosters a "real world" atmosphere, promoting the development of fundamental skills in Jazz.


Through our Jazz Minor and BA in Jazz Studies curriculum and ensemble performance, students are provided the opportunity to improve individual musicianship, create a personal voice, learn from and be inspired by the rich history, understand the evolutionary process and modern trends of Jazz, while becoming musical leaders and positive contributors to the Kent State University experience.
