About Stanford Jazz Workshop

Stanford Jazz Workshop (SJW) is a 52-year-old independent nonprofit dedicated to the perpetuation of jazz music through educational programs and concerts of the highest artistic quality. Our mission is to educate, entertain, and inspire a community of artists, students, and audience members through the study, performance, and appreciation of jazz — an original American musical form.

Our summer jazz immersion programs are held on the beautiful campus of Stanford University during July and August each year. We produce the annual Stanford Jazz Festival, featuring many of the world’s greatest jazz artists. Our year-round jazz education programs include the Giant Steps Big Bands for middle school musicians, the Miles Ahead Big Bands for high school musicians, JazzGirls Day, the SJW Fall Jazz Festival, and the Jazz Inside Out series of jazz engagement programs.
