Jazz in Schools

JAG is in schools, making a significant impact on thousands of people each year through assembly performances and residencies, professional development for educators, and arts integrated projects. Jazz offers a fresh approach to creating and thinking and can serve as a vehicle for learning and processing information. Our musicians interact with audiences and our programs provide a balance of knowledge, conceptual understanding and skill development.

  • We teach past the auditorium and into the classroom.
  • We teach past the technical aspects and into the spaces for creativity.
  • We teach past the group and into development of the individual.
  • We encourage listening. We encourage creativity and curiosity.
  • We bolster higher level thinking at every grade level.
