The Nashville Jazz Workshop provides our community with quality jazz education in a non-traditional setting and excellence in jazz performance.

We accomplish our mission through:

* A workshop environment where jazz professionals pass on their knowledge & experience in a journeyman/apprentice situation * Classes for players & non-players * Performances to promote community appreciation of jazz

History of NJW

The organization was founded in 1998 as the Nashville Jazz Institute by Lori Mechem and Roger Spencer, and opened with a handful of students. The program was based on a workshop model developed by Mechem and Spencer growing out of their dissatisfaction with traditional academic jazz education. The workshop model is based on a journeyman/apprentice approach. Students have the chance to play with faculty and perform in different settings. The school attracted a loyal and growing following of students. It also became clear that besides helping the students and instructors, the workshop format was a unique approach to jazz education that could benefit the entire community.
