Senior Project
1 credit
Seniors prepare and perform a full-length concert of original material/arrangements at the CJC, Yoshi’s or other concert venue. The concert is professionally recorded. Students focus oncomposing and arranging repertoire, recording and mixing the material, packaging and distributing the product, marketing and publicizing the concert, rehearsing the band and gaining an understanding of all of the legal issues related to production, publishing and copyright laws. Students complete this project in conjunction with a faculty advisor.

CJC Catalog
The Word

“The CJC provides some of the most in depth study of jazz out there. A core curriculum of not two, but four semesters of jazz ear training and hands on jazz theoryand improvisation, culminating in transcription and analysis of the greatest jazz artists of all time. The teachers are wonderful, organized and communicate concepts in a way that clearly transforms each and every student.”
