Excellence - Perseverance - Hard Work

The Westchester Center for Jazz and Contemporary Music provides an opportunity for musicians of diverse backgrounds, abilities, and ages to develop their skills playing jazz and related forms of modern music under professional musicians who have spent their careers not just playing their instruments but performing as well. Our priority is to develop musicians who play with confidence, skill, and knowledge in an environment that recognizes anything is achievable with hard work and a willingness to learn.
