Community Jazz Partnerships
Seeking to develop relationships in the community beyond its summer Jazz Camp and Residency programs, Stanford Jazz Workshop offers assistance and support to public and charter school music departments throughout the year. Contributing the expertise and experience that has made SJW a leader in jazz education, we bring our faculty and guest artists into classrooms on in the Peninsula, East Bay, and San Francisco schools. Students learn about concepts such as jazz harmony and improvisation, become familiar with the essential repertoire and discover the artists who created this uniquely American art form. SJW’s faculty and staff work with each school on an individual basis to create dynamic and interactive presentations tailored just for them.
