About Jazz at the Music Institute of Chicago

The Music Institute of Chicago provides students of all ages and levels opportunities to explore jazz through private instruction, combos and improvisation classes.

 

A faculty comprised of some of Chicago's most respected jazz musicians bring a deep knowledge of jazz history and the current jazz scene into every class and lesson. 

 

Teachers nurture each student's skill and style development as they learn to play by ear and improvise. MIC jazz students become leaders in their middle and high school jazz programs and enjoy performance opportunities at Nichols Concert Hall as well as community venues.
