We are developing fine musicians and compassionate young adults who understand and respect the history of this great Black American Art Form. It is an honor to play this music, and it is thanks to people like you that we offer high-quality jazz education to all of our students. Playing live once a week has required a major pivot. We are renting space at Phinney’s Neighborhood Center and providing students with all the required PPE. It is a thrill to be together again. Please, GiveBIG to Roosevelt Jazz.
