Jazz Education Ensemble
A member of Intersection for the Arts
As musical mentors, our mission is to enrich the future of our global community by empowering children with the ability to solve problems through creative thinking, and develop the knowledge, confidence and skills to work together in groups to achieve artistic and leadership mastery beyond previous expectations. On an individual level our students learn through sharing and practicing basic jazz music concepts that improve cognitive flexibility, enhance curiosity and foster resourcefulness; benefits that can have far reaching positive effects within families as well as in local communities.
In our current world environment where significant technological and other changes occur faster than humanity has ever experienced, the ability to think creatively, consider alternative solutions rapidly and be brave enough to test ideas as part of the process to create solutions are the fundamental lessons learned by students in our classes. Accordingly, the ideas realized through our courses make this experience a timely, constructive and inspirational program.
