TUITION

FINANCIAL AID
We're committed to this program being affordable for families. If the tuition is too expensive for you at this time, for whatever reason, please apply for financial aid online BEFORE you register. We will get back to you quickly, typically within 2 business days. If you have any questions about financial aid or payment plans, contact us. We are committed to making it work for everyone, in fact, 40% of JazzED families receive some amount of financial aid!


REGISTRATION
Register directly into the combo you want. Instrument spots are first come, first served. Must be willing to focus on learning improvisation skills, but do not need to be an experienced improvisor to join.

If your instrument does not appear on the registration page, that means we're full on that instrument and you should try a different combo.
