Adult Jazz Programing

CCJA Adult Jazz Small Groups

In 2018, CCJA sought to create an arm of the organization for talented and curious adult musicians, bringing the organization's same excellent jazz educational programming to adults ages 18 and up. The CCJA Adult Small Groups are led by professional mentors with the occasional assistance of near-peer mentors. These mentors are all accomplished professional musicians, most of whom also teach at the collegiate level and they have a wealth of experience to share with students of all ages. Learn more about our faculty here.


The Denver CCJA Adult Group will meet throughout the academic year (Fall, Winter, and Spring) in the format of weekly rehearsals where CCJA students and faculty play and perform together as they study jazz improvisation, technique, style, theory, and history. Summer offerings will be available as well. Students are encouraged to express themselves improvisationally and through composing/arranging for their groups. At the end of each session, CCJA Adult Groups  perform for the public, often at noted area jazz venues.

Cancellation policy: once the session has begun, CCJA is only able to offer partial cash refunds or full credit for a future CCJA program.
