Jazz Academy Support

Jazz Academy Education Programs

The Jazz Arts Group believes in the power of music to transform lives and is committed to offering lifelong-learning opportunities for individuals of all ages, interests, backgrounds and abilities. JAG achieves this with our two Jazz Academy programs: Jazz in the Community and Jazz in Schools. JAG has opened the Jazz Academy’s community instructional space at the Lincoln Theatre. With nearly 5,000 square feet, this is a premier facility for multi-generational and recreational music making, music technology instruction for young musicians, ensemble playing, after-school programs, and lectures with world-class musicians. Through our Jazz Academy programs, we make a significant impact on thousands of people each year through in-school performances and residencies, professional development for educators, internships for young people and master classes with world-renowned musicians.

Support is needed each year to ensure the continuation of our education programs. Support can come in the form of sponsorship or scholarship dollars. If there is a program that you find especially compelling, please let us know. Prices vary from $100 to $50,000. Funders for our education programs are given credit during the program and in our printed materials. We are pleased to include Grange Insurance, Bob Evans, Cardinal Foundation, and PNC Bank as a representation of our corporate education donors.
