Nashville’s community center for jazz, with classes, public performances, and special events. The Nashville Jazz Workshop is a non-profit organization supporting jazz musicians, jazz fans, and the jazz community.


This Sunday, January 19 at 3pm is the first Jazz on the Move presentation of 2020! It takes place in the auditorium at the Frist Art Museum and features trumpeter Jamey Simmons on The Life and Music of Freddie Hubbard. More information here.

It’s official – the last classes and performances have taken place at the NJW’s Neuhoff location, which will be closing its doors shortly. The new location on Buchanan Street isn’t quite ready, so in January we’ll be holding classes in a temporary location – 2601 Elm Hill Pike, Suite R, Nashville, 37214 (in the Royal Elm Business Park).


The Jazz Workshop has classes from introductory to advanced — for students just learning jazz, professionals wanting to “sharpen their edges,” and non-musicians wanting to learn more about jazz. Instructors are Nashville’s finest jazz musicians. Unless otherwise noted, classes are 2 hours a night, once a week. Tuition is $250 per 6-week class, $125 per 3-week class, and $50 per 1-day class.

Classes will start Monday, January 20 and go until February 20. It’s a 5-week period, but classes will be the full 12 hours – a half hour will be added to four of the sessions. Tuition will be $250, except as noted.

Classes will be held at a temporary location, 2601 Elm Hill Pike, Suite R, Nashville, 37214 (in the Royal Elm Business Park) until the Buchanan property is ready to go.

In addition, to make the commute easier for everyone, we will now be hosting one class period each evening, Monday through Thursday, beginning at 7pm.

Color Key:

  • Instrumentalists
  • Vocalists

Session Dates: January 20 to February 20, 2020
