The SOJ Jazz Music Center was founded in 1973 by John Castellano, The Collective’s Provost, as a center for jazz studies focusing on ensemble workshops for all instruments. It is now one of the oldest and most respected jazz studies programs in New York City. Students are grouped with other musicians of the same experience level, creating a fun and comfortable environment for musical growth. The curriculum includes ensembles in Jazz and Latin-Jazz. In 1990, SOJ became the ensemble division of The Collective.
