New York Jazz Workshop Rehearsal Studio

Located in the heart of Manhattan, New York Jazz Workshop is resuming in person classes and private lessons. NYJW is one of New York’s premier educational institutions, providing jazz workshops, classes, and private lessons under the direction of some truly world-class faculty.

( – Music education is back in person. Play music in an environment that is supportive, educational, and FUN!

Workshops vary by style and level, and there’s something happening every day of the week, both in person and online—there’s something for everyone!
