The WMC has had a dynamic presence in the historic Williamsburg section of Brooklyn for over twenty years, delighting local audiences with the best in live jazz performance, and providing quality music instruction for people of all ages.

Founded in 1981 by musician and composer, Gerry Eastman, the Williamsburg Music Center exists to foster the creation, performance, and appreciation of American classical music. It is Brooklyn's only black-owned and operated, non-profit, jazz institution, and the only one in New York City to offer classes and workshops in jazz history and performance.

Gerry Eastman has emerged as a prominent musician on the New York scene, with work as a performer, composer, producer, arranger, conductor, and band leader to his credit

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
