NJCU JAZZ STUDIES - MISSION & VISION

NJCU Jazz Studies Philosophy:

Character. We are absolutely faithful to the vision of who we want to be. We are absolutely committed to the music - for ourselves, our audiences, and each other. We do not settle for less than our very best.

Hunger for Battle. We set massive goals as a challenge to ourselves. We know problems are going to come up, and we live to crush them. We waste no time with blame, denial, or bad vibe.

Brilliant Simplicity. We take the shortest, boldest path to dominate our musical challenges. We eliminate everything unnecessary, and we remind one another to do the same. We make a way when there is no way. We do more with less, and we master the fundamentals of Jazz Music.

Humility. We’re the best in the world because we’re teachable. Hungry. When we find a musical idea that works, we immediately integrate it into what we’re doing. If an approach isn't working, we drop it and find a better way, with no ego whatsoever.

We focus on improving EVERY DAY.
