UMass Fine Arts Center's signature summer program features world-class faculty and students from around the globe. 

Jazz in July is a concentrated two-week program, where jazz vocalists and instrumentalists study improvisation with some of the nation’s best jazz artists and educators. Billy Taylor, Sheila Jordan, and Max Roach helped develop Jazz in July’s strong foundation in the traditions of jazz.

The program includes master classes, group clinics, jazz theory and improvisation training, ensemble coaching, jam sessions, and style explorations. Live performance is critical to our program and students perform before a live audience in community settings. Jazz in July is a multi-generational program with participants 15 and over.
