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 we bring back a memorable Jazz on the Move Performances in cooperation with the Frist Art Museum. Streaming on YouTube at 3pm, the performance features saxophone great Kirk Whalum in a centennial tribute to Arnett Cobb. Watch here.

Jazz From Home with pianist Tyler Bullock this Wednesday June 3 at 7pm CDT. Watch the show here.

Tune in to From The Archives Friday at 8pm CDT for a great set from Peter Bernstein with the Lori Mechem Trio.


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.

Online classes start Monday, June 8 and go until June 25.

We are excited to announce our online classes at the Nashville Jazz Workshop!
