Jazz and Improvisation: Modern American Music
Do you want to break the mold and challenge the expected? Join our Modern American Music department and shape the music of tomorrow.
Modern American Music (MAM) at Longy offers an advanced program in the performance of modern and contemporary musical styles.
MAM students develop advanced improvisational skills, high technical proficiency, and an understanding of contemporary and traditional repertoire that will help them flourish as they launch their careers.
Incoming students demonstrate extensive experience in either jazz or contemporary European styles (classical), as well as a strong desire to explore and create in both genres.
