WNYC is a media sponsor of the Swing University 2009-10 season, presented by Jazz at Lincoln Center. This series of courses aims to explain jazz, its development, and how to be an effective listener.

Class members learn how to follow song form, understand the uses of ensemble and soloist in a jazz performance, and explore the significant events in the music's history. Taught with the help of special guest lecturers, Swing University offers a wide range of courses to suit all jazz lovers from novices to jazz cats.
