About MBJ

The 3rd Annual Miami Beach Jazz Festival's global theme unites an incredible array of international talent in South Florida. While main events are scheduled for the last week of January, 2016, the festival features several kick-off events and concert-series, in a variety of new locations that indicate the rapid growth and universal appeal of the festival.

MBJ Academy

Designed to accommodate a small number of highly gifted students from around the world, the Miami Beach Jazz Academy is a winter music program geared to provide students with the unique opportunity to advance their studies in an apprenticeship system. Selected students have the opportunity to work 1-on-1 with festival artists for one week, record at a state of the art recording studio and perform publicly as part of the Jazz Festival. The goal is to enhance the students learning process and to build a bridge between the world of Academia and real-life application of this truly American art form we call "Jazz".
