The Jazzschool rocks Berkeley music scene

The sounds of guitar, drums and piano that fill the Jazzschool in Berkeley’s Arts District are signs of a vibrant program that provides classes, workshops, performances and a degree program through the Jazz Institute.

The Brazilian Jazz Ensemble’s July workshop revealed a blend of talented musicians of all ages, joining together to showcase their individual skills, melded into one lively workshop session on the afternoon our film crew visited.

From The Jazzcaffe that provides a gathering space for musicians to the classrooms that fill with the sounds of many types of music, the Jazzschool is a unique collection of passions that all center around the love of jazz.
