Jazz Matters

University of California Press

This chapter discusses jazz education and the shift from urban nightclubs to schools as the primary homes of hundreds of jazz composers and musicians. However, this shift continues to be marginalized, ignored, or belittled throughout the wide range of jazz discourse. The chapter also examines several deeply held conceptions of jazz history and music education in order to encourage people to reconsider the roles that schools currently play in the development and spread of jazz music.

Keywords:   jazz education, urban nightclubs, schools, jazz discourse, jazz history, music education
