Ongoing Conversations: The Summer Global Jazz Intensive Online at UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music is a weeklong online summer intensive program designed for high school students ages 14-18. Using online platforms as an extended global classroom, the program brings performers together from across the world to create the nation’s first global jazz studies summer program. The program will last from June 22 to 27.

Students will learn from composers and arrangers who are recent graduates of the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz Performance at UCLA and UCLA Global Jazz Studies faculty; participate in masterclasses, composition workshops, and performances designed around the participants’ musical interests and instrumentation; and study approaches to composition and improvisation for soloists, small groups, and large ensemble.
