Schools of Cool: Jazz Performance Education Providing a Different Kind of Gig.
Roach, Ronald
Black Issues in Higher Education, v14 n24 p16-19,21 Jan 22 1998
Currently, about 200 colleges and universities offer programs in jazz performance. Although many are in conservatories, the majority reside in college and university music departments. This development reflects a changing jazz infrastructure, formerly centered in local bands but increasingly based in a network of higher education institutions, and the growing conviction that jazz can be taught in academic settings.
