Summer Jazz Course Offered in London

A summer jazz course in London offers music students a chance to earn credit through a combination of lectures, readings, recordings and live performances in some of London’s jazz and blues clubs.

Jesse Krebs, associate professor of music, will lead an informational meeting about the course at 7 p.m. Feb. 2 in the Student Union Building Alumni Room. The course will fulfill the requirements for Truman’s Perspectives in Jazz class.

While abroad, students will explore the development of American jazz music and focus on the dissemination of jazz to other parts of the world.

The course’s location provides an opportunity to learn from adjunct professors to whom music students may otherwise not have access.

Throughout the course, students will have the opportunity to tour Westminster Abbey, see a performance in the Globe Theatre and participate in other social and cultural events included in the course fee.

This program is through a study abroad company called CAPA International Education, so students will have access to CAPA’s Computer Lab and the services of a CAPA Coordinator and support staff in addition to visiting faculty from Truman.
