COMPOSER SPOTLIGHTS (masterclasses) invite subscribers into the writing room for a behind the scenes look at the presenting artist's own music.

LISTENING SESSIONS give our presenting artists a platform to share samples of music that intrigue and inspire, serving as the launching point for casual conversation.

FOUNDATIONAL FOCUS is a pre-recorded masterclasses series. Using examples from the jazz canon as well as their own writing, Presenting Artists explore fundamental aspects of jazz composition.

ROUNDTABLES feature members of our Founding Team and special guests, in a group conversation about composition and other musical topics of interest.

GROUP LESSONS offer members a chance to receive detailed feedback on their own work from one of our Presenting Artists. Submissions are collected in advance of Group Lessons. Selected participants are invited to join a livestream and given constructive feedback on their submitted work.

LIVE Q&A with the presenting artists conclude our livestreams.
