Jazz House Kids’ contemporary, colorful offices and studios opened in February, 2013, enabling us to consolidate our administrative work and our classrooms into one big, happy space.
We now have 4,500 square feet to call home. Beautifully renovated by Steven Plofker and Associates, with a student- and staff-friendly space designed gratis by Montclair architect John Reimnitz, the Jazz House boasts an open, flexible and spacious office area, a galley kitchen, and three acoustically treated rehearsal rooms of different sizes where our ensembles and big bands meet. Located at 347 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, NJ, our headquarters anchors the township’s burgeoning new arts district.
We are grateful for the many monetary and in-kind donations from the following supporters who helped us build our “house.”
