The SoCal Jazz Society is an in-class artist-in-residency program design to teach students about the history and development of Jazz Music in America.

The SoCal Jazz Society is making a huge difference in the lives of San Diego students!  Help us reach more children!

Our 12-Week Artists In Residencyprogram brings America's original music to life by teaching call and response, blues and spiritual roots; rhythm, meter and syncopation, as well as chord progressions are taught through participation and audio/visual examples. Lessons plans are directly tied to the state standards for music education.

Students are then treated to a concert of live jazz music in their school wherein they are invited to join the band and perform what they have learned.  

During parent-teacher conferences this week a classroom teacher told us:

"I thought you would like to know that during parent/teacher conferences the parents have been telling me how much their kids love jazz! They come home singing and scatting, and some parents have even told me that their
kids want them to google songs like 'Take the A train' so that they can enjoy it at home!!

So...YOU are making a huge difference in their lives!!

Have a wonderful and jazzy Thanksgiving!!"

Please make a year-end contribution now!  All money goes to supporting our Jazz Artists in Residence!
