SUPPORT

One of our instructors said it best: “All children have a song in their heart.” At JAZZ HOUSE KiDS, we believe that all children, whether they grow up to be a pianist or a police officer, band director or doctor, desire and deserve the chance to find their song and sing it to the world. That’s why our mission is to bridge the arts gap that keeps too many of these young voices unheard.

Join us! Your gift allows us to bring programs, teachers, instruments, inspiration, and dedication to thousands of young people who look to us to help them share their song.

YEAR-END APPEAL

Help JAZZ HOUSE KiDS keep swinging straight ahead though unsteady times! Your support helps us achieve our goals that are vital to our mission, and foster the innovation, impact and deepen our reach.

MUSIC + EDUCATION FUNDS

Providing tuition assistance for classes at the JAZZ HOUSE and Summer Workshop, instrument rentals, in-school programs free-of-charge to students, private lessons and so much more, our new fund aids talented students who long to play music and learn through jazz.
"IT’S THE SATISFACTION OF GIVING BACK, AND THERE IS NO BETTER OR NICER FEELING..."
