The GJA Experience

I would highly recommend GJA to all the musicians out there. I Learned so much within a small span of 4 months then I did on my own from books. If you are an experienced musician(artist) and I looking for a place to start your journey in advance music theory or jazz this is the perfect place!!

Studying at GJA won’t just make you a better musician. It will make you a better person.
