Adult Classes

Is it time to take your skills to another level?  Do you want to get out of the shed and make some new friends? Feeling the need to dust off your instrument and get back in the game?  Now is the time! YLJC is offering adult classes!
Adult Combos will consist of six or more students and are available to all skill levels—instrumentalists who are new to jazz,  part-timers, or seasoned veterans. 
Class meetings will be in the evenings on Wednesdays or Thursdays at 6:00 PM or 7:45 PM and will follow the current class calendar


 There is no formal audition process. Instead, we will hold an informal meet-and-greet followed by a jam session with instructors. Once the instructors have a feel for everyone’s playing ability, they will group adult students into combos. Adult students must register to participate in the meet-and-greet jam session—no registration fees  


Adult tuition is $1,400 for the academic season (30 classes). For adult students joining for just the spring semester (18 classes), the tuition is $840.  Students enrolled in college will receive a 50% discount.

Billing will be sent via email once classes have started.
