The UCO Jazz Lab serves three primary functions. As an Education facility for the jazz studies program, as a community focused live music venue and as a place to learn, write and record music.
EDUCATE: Home of the Jazz Studies Division of the University of Central Oklahoma School of Music. Students utilize the Lab on a daily basis. The School of Music currently offers an undergraduate Minor in Jazz Studies, a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, and a Master of Music in Jazz Studies with Majors in Performance or Music Production. All UCO students, both music majors and non-majors, are welcome to audition and participate in our eleven student jazz groups.
ENTERTAIN: A World class entertainment venue featuring a relaxed atmosphere styled after jazz clubs in New Orleans! Every week the Jazz Lab features live entertainment with food and beverages provided by Hideaway Pizza.
CREATE: A state of the art recording studio combining educational endeavors with the highest quality professional tracking, mixing, mastering and duplication of all types of commercial audio products. We have recently completed a MAJOR rebuild of our facility with upgrades that provide our students and limited commercial clients with some of the best equipment available in Oklahoma.
