This Wednesday, April 1 at 7pm don’t miss a live streamed concert in the Jazz From Home series. Next week’s concert features solo piano from Tyler Bullock. Information here.

We hope you’ve been following the Sunday 8pm rebroadcasts of “Live From The Workshop” on WMOT’s Jazz Network. This Sunday’s (April 5) show features a performance of B-3 organist Moe Denham originally recorded in  2005!

Tune into YouTube Live next Sunday at 12 noon for a streaming performance from NJW’s archives, a fabulous Jazz on the Move performance (program and link coming soon).


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, April 13 and go until May 21.
