A degree in Jazz Studies

We have a curriculum based on active involvement in music.

Welcome to Jazz Studies in the ASU School of Music, Dance and Theatre. Jazz Studies at ASU combines jazz performance, composition and pedagogy into a program that allows you to express yourself musically while also emphasizing the necessary skills for a professional career in music.

The Jazz Studies program has a curriculum based on active involvement in music. A thorough theoretical understanding of music is essential, but ultimately, there is no substitute for actually writing and playing music. The jazz ensembles perform frequently on campus, as well as making numerous off-campus appearances in clubs and resorts around the Valley.

We offer a bachelor of music in jazz studies, a master of music in performance and a master of music education both with an emphasis in jazz studies.
