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 group for helping us to provide this wonderful opportunity to our economically disadvantaged students...The number of campuses struggling to pay for enrichment opportunities will continue to grow and we appreciate the Austin Jazz Workshop's commitment to bring quality enrichment programs to all of our campuses.
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.
