Students Served Since 1994
Harris Elementary, Early College Prep
Thank you for teaching my students that Jazz is an artform that is very much alive...My students directly benefit from programs like yours because I know it leads them to musical activities later on in their school career...When their culture is represented so beautifully, it matters!
Director of Fine Arts, Round Rock Independent School District
We are grateful to this organization for helping us to provide this enriching opportunity to our economically disadvantaged students on select campuses. Additionally, many of our campuses are near Title I status which makes it difficult to obtain grant funds for experiences like what Austin Jazz Workshop offers.
Baranoff Elementary School
Every year, my students are always blown away by the talent and relatability that the Austin Jazz Workshop provides...The Austin Jazz Workshop is vital in the development of my students' musical knowledge and their interest in music outside of the classroom for their future musical careers.
Emerging Jazz Talent Participant
I started attending EMJATA jam sessions when I was still a senior in high school...The opportunity EMJATA provided for me fostered significant improvement as a player and performer. It also helped me to deepen my love for the artform and was a big part of why I chose jazz as a career.
