Description Jazz has a long and storied history at WSU. Wichita has historically been a popular stop on the concert tours of many of the most famous jazz musicians. Our partnership with the Wichita Jazz Festival, the longest-running educational jazz festival in the nation, continues today and brings our jazz students into contact with some of the best and brightest of the jazz world. The Jazz Studies Department is part of a dynamic School of Music, which is in turn part of WSU's College of Fine Arts. We boast top faculty from the nation's most prestigious institutions and teachers, including the Eastman School of Music, Indiana University, the University of North Texas, New England Conservatory of Music, Northwestern University, and many others. Our graduates have also gone on to study at prestigious institutes such as the University of Michigan, and the Berklee School of Music. Jazz Studies alumni have gone on to do great things. The ranks of great players to come through WSU include NYC drummer Matt Wilson (student of JC Combs), current Assistant Professor of Jazz and Contemporary Improvisation at the University of Michigan Andrew Bishop, current WSU Professor of Jazz Piano John Goering and Professor of Jazz Trumpet Scott Strecker, vocalist with the Air Force Band Blue Steel Julie Bradley, and LA-based bassist Edward Livingston.
