In the schools with students and teachers

The AJW’s mission is to perform for and with public school students in order to encourage their participation in band, orchestra, and choir programs; to uphold and promote the American jazz tradition; and, to enhance quality of life for all ages through live performances employing area musicians and collaborations with school ensembles and nonprofit organizations in central Texas.

One of the most exciting moments of the Austin Jazz Workshop project occurs when the musician enters the music classroom. In this more intimate setting, children have an opportunity to ask questions and witness firsthand the joy and dedication a professional brings to jazz performance. They are also encouraged to become active participants in the process of music-making themselves through participation in school band, orchestra, and choir programs.

The 4th Annual AJW Jazz Jubilee is slated for April 7th, 2019 at the AISD Performing Arts Center Black Box Theater.  For more info on how to sign up, view the 2019 Letter of Intent below.
