Our Mission: 

 

Jazz Residency Initiative is a nonprofit organization dedicated to positively impacting the development of aspiring jazz musicians by facilitating artist-in-residency experiences with master jazz musicians. By serving as the liaison between guest artists and schools, sharing its acquired knowledge, and utilizing a unique funding model, Jazz Residency Initiative is able to provide enrichment opportunities without placing an undue burden on local music educators or school budgets. During the residencies, guest artists share their knowledge with student musicians through a series of master classes, rehearsals, and interactive workshops. Residencies culminate in a Capstone Concert in which guest artists and student musicians share a stage and perform for their local community.
