The jazz studies faculty boasts scholars, award-winning composers and performers, NEA recipients, Pulitzer Prize winners and Jazz Masters. This, combined with a wide variety of performance opportunities, including jazz big bands (3), Latin Big Band, Studio Orchestra, rhythm section ensembles, and stylized combos (8); creates a very active and exciting atmosphere for a large talented pool of young performers.

Students in the BM and MM jazz studies programs study with faculty members who possess impressive performance and educational credentials. Jazz students are trained in virtually every aspect of jazz performance and pedagogy including:  jazz improvisation, jazz history, jazz arranging/composition, small and large ensemble playing, rhythm section techniques, jazz pedagogy, private instrumental study, studio techniques and vocal jazz.

We hope that our website will provide you with a glimpse into the exciting world of IU Jazz. Please take a moment to get to know the faculty and the programs that we have to offer.
