Youth Program Support

Part of our mission is to encourage young musicians to discover traditional jazz and learn more about their musical heritage. Understanding the fundamentals of early jazz provides an excellent foundation for future musical exploration and study. A scholarship fund established in 1990 enables youth participation in jazz clinics and camps. Each year at Jazz Bash by the Bay attendees are treated to performances by outstanding youth bands. A free early jazz youth clinic is held Saturday morning. High school students and younger students with an adult are admitted free for all three days of the festival.
