WHAT WE DO
AT JAZZ HOUSE KiDS, WE BELIEVE THAT LEARNING TO UNDERSTAND, CREATE AND LOVE JAZZ — THIS GREAT AMERICAN ART FORM – REAPS LIFELONG BENEFITS THAT EVERY CHILD DESERVES TO ENJOY.
We know that music creates bonds and builds communities. That’s why everything we do is suffused with jazz. Step into our rehearsal rooms, an in-school program, one of our events, or even our office, and you’ll find music in the air! We put these beliefs into practice in a variety of ways and places: In schools, at our JAZZ HOUSE studio, and within the larger communities where we work, we’ve built circles of enthusiastic students, dedicated staff, first-rate professional teaching artists, supporters and friends.
@ THE JAZZ HOUSE
JAZZ HOUSE KiDS is the only community arts organization in New Jersey exclusively dedicated to educating children through jazz: America’s home-grown art form. At the JAZZ HOUSE, we ensure that every student has access to music, education, mentoring, and apprenticeship.
IN THE COMMUNITY
JAZZ HOUSE KiDS participates in over 80 community performances a year and each summer we produce the Montclair Jazz Festival, which is free and open to the public. We are now seeing the legacy of our work through our alums who are truly the rising new generation of jazz musicians and engaged citizens. We foster an artistic edge ensure that every one of our students has access to music, education, mentoring, and leadership.
