About the California Jazz Conservatory

Founded in 1997 in Berkeley, California, as the Jazzschool––a community music school with jazz classes, workshops and concerts, which continue to be a focus to this day––the institution introduced a new four-year degree program in 2009, offering a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies. At that time, the Jazzschool was incorporated into the newly renamed California Jazz Conservatory. 

The institution was fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music in December of 2013, making the California Jazz Conservatory the only fully accredited, completely independent music conservatory in America totally devoted to the study and performance of jazz.
