Monterey Jazz in the Schools Artists

MJF Jazz in the Schools

Our team of seasoned teaching artists come to Monterey each month from all across the country. Many have performed on the stages of the Monterey Jazz Festival, and all deeply believe in the power of jazz to transform lives. That’s because when we dig into this music, we:

  • Learn how to think on our feet, make quick decisions and be responsive in the moment
  • Develop the courage to express ourselves
  • Learn to listen with empathy
  • Practice the leadership and teamwork required to swing as a band
  • Learn about who we are and where we’ve been as Americans
