JAZZ HOUSE MONTCLAIR
We believe in jazz as a tremendous teaching tool. Through our year-round jazz education and performance programs, we teach children ages 8 to 18 to become lifelong learners, communicators and innovators. As students practice on their instruments, rehearse with their ensembles, and interact with instructors trained to teach and mentor them, they develop important 21st century skills: confidence, perseverance, focus, collaboration, dedication, accountability and an openness to constructive feedback. These skills are essential for all students as they transition to adulthood and become successful, contributing members of their communities.
Calling all players, singers, and straight-up jazz fans: Whether you’re 8 or 48, brand new or experienced on your instrument, JAZZ HOUSE KiDS has programming that engages and excites students, promotes harmony and collaboration and builds musicianship.
JAZZ HOUSE KiDS hosts exceptional event that brings our communities together, featuring incredible world-class jazz performances. The MONTCLAIR JAZZ FEST has grown to be one of the largest free jazz festivals in the country.
