The Jazz Academy Celebrates Its First Birthday

Please the Jazz Academy on Thursday, June 10 from 5:30 – 8:00 PM as they celebrate their first year of serving as a community instructional space where everyone can listen, learn and play. There will be cake, ice cream, and – of course – music for all. Plus, you won’t want to miss a very special award presentation. Also check out the birthday gift registry online at to see how you can help support the efforts of the Jazz Academy!

In 2009, the Jazz Arts Group opened the Jazz Academy community instructional space in the newly restored and historic Lincoln Theatre complex for multi-generational and recreational music making, ensemble playing, after-school programs, technology instruction and lectures with world-class musicians – a place where everyone can listen, learn and play. With nearly 5,000 square feet, this state-of-the-art facility is home to a recording lab, a keyboard studio, and multiple rehearsal spaces.

The Jazz Arts Group believes in the power of music to transform lives and is committed to offering lifelong-learning opportunities for individuals of all ages, interests, backgrounds and abilities. Classes at the Jazz Academy are designed to engage all ages and interests, from pre-school children to senior citizens, guitar players to aspiring producers, and students to teachers.

The Jazz Academy’s facility is located on the 4th floor of the Lincoln Theatre complex at 769 E. Long Street.
