Description

International Jazz Day AZ is a music education foundation that works to promote, preserve, perpetuate, and encourage the music, culture, and heritage of communities in Arizona. Through our mission, we strive to create a supportive environment where young people can learn the art of jazz and develop their skills as musicians. We believe that by educating students on jazz's roots, we can help them understand the importance of this genre as an art form. Additionally, we work with local educators to provide workshops and performances with professional jazz musicians to expose students to different styles and techniques. We aim to foster a better appreciation for jazz music among its practitioners and audiences. We produce Jazz Festivals in Tempe, Mesa, Phoenix, and Scottsdale, Arizona, every April, Jazz Appreciation Month. This is where we need Volunteers.
