Bachelor in Music: Jazz Studies

This program seeks to serve the needs of our current and future students who seek to develop the knowledge, skills, concepts, and sensitivities essential to the professional life of the musician based on the educational foundation of the liberal arts. To successfully engage the professional world, the musician must exhibit not only technical competence but also broad knowledge of music and music literature, the ability to integrate musical knowledge and skills, sensitivity to musical styles, and insight into the role of music in the broader context of intellectual and cultural life.

The Jazz Studies concentration leverages the historic roots of jazz music in metropolitan Kansas City and draws on the talents of contemporary jazz performers in the area.
