In the Community
We are committed to bringing our music to the entire community! To date, this includes:
Bringing musicians to hospitals, senior living communities, and memory loss units at nursing homes, even on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!
Hosting out Scholarship Program and Concert
Giving all music students and scholarship applicants seats to our shows
Repairing used musical instruments to donate to schools (in partnership with Music in Schools Today)
Hiring student jazz musicians to play at public and private events
Giving individual lessons to jazz students with our visiting musicians
Covering the tuition at Jam Camp West (the Northern California jazz summer camp) for low-income students
Each year, our panel of professional musicians awards three California music students monetary awards to further their jazz education and music programs. The winners are also hired throughout the coming year to perform at JATB events. All applicants are invited to free concerts and workshops throughout the school year.
The competition is open to high school jazz instrumentalists in California.
Three winners will be picked by a panel of professional jazz musicians based on their submissions and awarded $500 each to further their music studies as well as hired for at least three paid performances as part of JATB events. The total value of the award is $1000.
The students that aren’t finalists are invited to join a database of students invited to free workshops.
Applicant must be currently enrolled in a California high school program between the ages of 14-18.
