Jazz Studies Track
The Jazz Studies Track integrates performance with dissemination of knowledge. For example, students in the Jazz Workshop ensembles perform and develop a repertoire and improvisational techniques on Tuesdays and Thursdays while the UCF Jazz Ensemble I and II meets Mondays and Wednesdays. The scheduling of our curriculum gives students a great deal of rehearsal and performance time and input from our professors. Click here for more information about Jazz Studies.
