Varis Leichtman Studio

The Life and Legacy of Benny Goodman


Due to today's storm, the 3/7/18 Benny Goodman class is rescheduled to 3/14/18. Please email swingu@jazz.org with questions.

Can’t commit to a full course? Single classes are now available at Swing University for $35 each (fees may apply).

Throughout his career, Goodman looked for outlets to demonstrate his versatility beyond the swing band concept. Among these moments that we’ll peruse are: classical music with Bartok, Bernstein and Stravinsky; jams with Fats Navarro, Herbie Hancock and Dave Brubeck; music for Walt Disney; as well as some truly rare performances captured on film.
