Jazz Studies

Start on a different note

Whether it's smooth and soulful or funky and energizing, you recognize jazz immediately when you hear it. In jazz studies at UW-Eau Claire, you'll hear and play it all. You will also work on projects outside class that focus on entrepreneurship led by faculty with unbeatable experience. Not a music major or minor? You can still audition and become an integral part of a jazz ensemble. Join the Grammy-nominated jazz studies area for one-of-a-kind learning and performing opportunities that ensure your jazz career starts on the perfect note.

The opportunities that have been granted to me here are extraordinary. From accompanying professional musicians, playing in jazz bands, to conducting operas and musicals, I have had experiences that have not only shaped me as a musician, but as a human being as well. There just isn’t another place like Music & Theatre Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
