Best Music School 

The Jazzschool

Since its 2002 move to the spacious S.H. Kress building on Addison Street, this music school, performance space, and cultural center has been the heart of the revived Downtown Berkeley Arts District. Whether you're tone-deaf and curious, or already a working musician, the Jazzschool provides courses for students of all ages and levels in disciplines like theory, history, composition, literature, and performance in a wide variety of instruments. And as a nonprofit committed to nurturing community and contributing to Bay Area cultural life, they offer frequent performance opportunities for students and pros alike. Better yet, the school provides scholarships to 15 percent of its students, making precious private music lessons accessible to kids from low-income families. With the faculty roster naming some of the Bay Area's most accomplished musicians and an advisory board graced by the legendary Dave Brubeck, the Jazzschool provides a rare opportunity for beginning students to learn from masters.
