Mission Statement

Jazz House Kids is a community-based arts organization with a mission to provide year-round musical, educational, and cultural programs to students in grades K-12, teachers, adults, and families from diverse backgrounds.

Internationally renowned jazz performers teach alongside our professional staff, offering students a wide range of creative programming that develops musical potential, enhances leadership skills, and strengthens academic performance.

The "Jazz House" provides the framework for students to cultivate the talent, discipline, skills and principles they need to play, sing, and appreciate America's original musical art form. Through music, mentoring and education, Jazz House Kids cultivates tomorrows global citizens so they may build vibrant communities where they live.

Description

What is a Jazz House? Quite simply, a Jazz House is the creative space where we come together with young people, their families and teachers to share, appreciate and learn about the jazz experience.

It is a mobile house, constantly in play, with wheels that turn on improvisation as it negotiates its way toward that incandescent goal: the celebration of jazz. It is a house whose foundation is built on:

  • Respect for creativity
  • Tolerance for diversity
  • Harmony in teamwork
  • Love for self and others
  • An abiding passion to preserve the legacy, and ensure the future, of jazz.




It is where we live
