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.


We hope you’ve been following the Sunday 8pm rebroadcasts of “Live From The Workshop” on WMOT’s Jazz Network. This Sunday’s show features a performance of Chris Walters originally recorded in June 2005!

The January class session is ending this week and classes start up again next week. See below for the schedule. Most are full, but call if you’re interested and we can see if there’s a space or put you on the list for next session!

Upcoming Classes

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.

The next class session starts Monday, February 24 and go until April 2. Tuition is $250, except as noted.

Classes are 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.
