Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz

Jazz in the Classroom

Share |

The Institute's worldwide, highly regarded Jazz in the Classroom programs are tailored for elementary, middle, high school, and college students to help them develop an understanding of and appreciation for jazz music. The series strives to share the positive aspects of jazz with young people who would not otherwise have opportunities to learn about this great national treasure.

Jazz in the Classroom was developed in response to drastic reductions in public funding for music education. The goal is to expand children's musical knowledge and encourage imaginative thinking, creativity, a positive self image and a respect for their own and others' cultural heritage. Through these programs, the Institute has reached millions of students, teachers, and families, many of whom are experiencing jazz for the first time.
