Students have the opportunity to attend a broad range of specialized short-term workshops taught by local and visiting artists throughout the year. Previous workshops by visiting faculty include Bobby McFerrin, Geoffrey Keezer, Christian McBride, Kurt Elling, Jeff “Tain” Watts, Nancy King, Ron Carter, Dave Weckl, Nnenna Freelon, Matt Wilson, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Dafnis Prieto, Winard Harper, Taylor Eigsti, Donald Harrison, Uri Caine, and others. In addition to attending master classes, students often have the opportunity to schedule private lessons with visiting artists. The cost of private lessons with visiting artists varies and is on a to-be-arranged basis between the student and artist.

“I do not think I could have made it this far, both artistically and professionally, without the support and encouragement of the superb CJC faculty.”
