Celebrating Over 5 Decades of Community Interactive Mentoring through Music
Please Give to The Jazz Workshop Inc. Building Renovation Project
Playing Music is Extremely Cathartic

The Jazz Workshop Inc. (JWI) is a music education and performance-based program. It provides an interactive approach to teaching and exhibiting the American World Music genre ~ Jazz. JWI offers this program to underserved students, and those within the region, to preserve and promote Jazz as the art form of America, demonstrating how this music influences, and consistently evolves throughout all other 

World Music categorizations. 


As a result of the fulfillment, underserved children in the community will have access to music lessons. Many schools, especially in underserved communities no longer provide music education to children. Music lessons enhance children's self-efficacy, cognitive skills, builds confidence, cultivates patience and discipline, encourages creative self-expression, improves memory bolsters brain power, enhances social skills, and the list goes on. During this time of pandemic and the aftermath, many students have been traumatized due to having been on lockdown as well as having lost loved ones to the Coron-19 virus. 

We are dedicated to working with the parents and/or guardians, on understanding the various stages of their child’s growth and development. We assist them in recognizing the effects that external stimuli 

can have on their children and how music is effectual.
