Miami Arts Charter School is a tuition-free public charter school offering a rigorous college-preparatory academic curriculum and conservatory-style training in the visual and performing arts. Opening in 2009, its Miami campus is located in Miami’s Design District minutes away from the Wynwood Arts District. Jazz music is highly emphasized and students are encouraged to participate in the jazz studies program through participation in the Jazz Band, Jazz Vocal Ensemble and in numerous Jazz small groups. Learning to improvise is a major goal of the jazz program as well as developing students’ sensibilities in Jazz interpretation. Under the direction of Alfredo de la Rosa the school and the Arts continue to expand.
