De internationella framgångarna för svensk jazz och populärmusik är uppenbara. Bakom resultaten står musiker av högsta kvalitet, och lyhörda lärare som fångar upp och förenar kreativitet med en inspirerande och gedigen träning.

KMH:s institution för jazz erbjuder i första hand sammanhängande utbildningsprogram för blivande musiker och pedagoger i olika genrer som jazz, pop, rock, latin, fri improvisation m.m.

Studenterna förbereds för en yrkesverksamhet som musiker, kompositörer/låtskrivare, konsert- och skivproducenter, arrangörer, egna företagare, teater- och studiomusiker, lärare på kulturskolor, folkhögskolor och musikhögskolor.

The students’ own projects

Students have many opportunities of pursuing their own projects in the course of their studies. Together with supervisors from the Jazz Department, they design these projects as courses in the form of concert tours, recording sessions and concerts. Several of these projects have turned into widely noted productions. A large number of cd productions are undertaken every year in association with the Sound Unit and its two recording studios.

Teacher-directed ensembles

Small ensembles are formed every year within the courses, depending on the combination of students and the course profile. In addition, the students can join in a number of recurrent teacher directed ensembles which often give outside guest performances and go on tour, for example the KMH Jazz Orchestra (big band) and many others.

Joint projects

The students make regular appearances at the main Stockholm jazz venues and are active in different Jazz projects in Sweden such as The Swedish Jazz Celebration, The Stockholm Jazzfestival, Jazzclub Fasching's "Jazzlab" in Stockholm and many others. Each spring the students also organizes their own jazzfestival called New Sound Made with about 45 participating bands, during a 3 day in and outdoor event.

International perspectives

Every year the Jazz Department is visited by internationally active musicians who hold clinics and workshops with teachers and students. Through the Nordpuls/Norplus and AEC jazz network the Jazz Department maintains international collaboration including teacher and student exchange with other jazz schools.
