The JazzReach program offers instrumental and vocal jazz teaching opportunities for USC jazz majors.

Student-participants sing and play in jazz ensembles led by Thornton music majors, receive weekly private lessons by the JazzReach student mentors, and participate in special master class sessions by faculty members from the Thornton jazz studies program. At the end of each semester, JazzReach ensembles perform at the Newman Recital Hall. The Thornton Outreach Program also produces a recording of the JazzReach ensembles each year with assistance from students and faculty in our music industry program.
