Yale School of Music, Jazz Initiative

Academia provides an invaluable furtherance for musical study.

I am blessed to live a stone’s throw away from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Due to an anonymous gift to the Yale School of Music the legacy of jazz studies will continue to thrive and expand for everyone’s cultural benefit. Read more about the rejuvenation of jazz studies at Yale here.

Wayne Escoffery, Grammy Award-winning award saxophonist joins the illustrious ranks of influential jazz musicians like Christian McBride, bassist appointed artistic director of the Newport Jazz Festival and Jason Moran, pianist who is the artistic director at The Kennedy Center. Professor Escoffery will be teaching a jazz improvisation course and coaching the Yale Jazz Ensemble.


Later this year the Yale School of Music celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Ellington Jazz Series (2016-2017) commencing with a performance by Savion Glover on September 30 at Morse Recital Hall.
