NYJA began its journey with a saxophone workshop in 2009. It was set off by committing itself to provide ensemble performance and rehearsal opportunities to upcoming musicians. The academy has developed and implemented a new and effective model for Jazz education that transforms its students into confident performing artists through group rehearsals rather than isolated practice sessions.
The academy has various customized learning programs such as a successful 'Saturday College Prep Program', 'Teen Jazz Improv', and 'Junior Jazz' workshops for the students of different age groups and requirements. Faculty members that also happen to be the finest musicians in New York City oversee all these programs and events.
The students at NYJA learn different styles of Jazz music on various instruments ranging from trombone, saxophone, piano, guitar, drums, voice and others. These extensive learning sessions eventually culminate into more exposure thanks to the academy offering ensembles, special performances, and alliances with the major jazz clubs, custom workshops for outstanding students, and online classes.
Another factor that the academy considers for aspiring students is the course fee. All the learning programs are priced affordably for the learner’s convenience. The academy provides scholarships to talented and eligible students by receiving grants from others. Musical instruments are given to the students who require them for uninterrupted jazz lessons. Enrollment for winter and spring sessions is starting now.
