Welcome SMF Jazz Academy at Home

Welcome to SMF Jazz Academy at Home

Ron & Susan Whitaker, founding sponsors


In response to COVID-19 conditions, SMF Jazz Academy has created SMF Jazz Academy at Home. In accordance with the CDC, State of Georgia, City of Savannah, and Savannah-Chatham County Public School System’s recommendations, SMF Jazz Academy has moved its instruction to remote online learning. Until this pandemic abates, we hope these online resources encourage the appreciation, performance, and education of Jazz.
