“Supporting the Next Generation of Jazz Artists”
Countdown to the 10th Anniversary of the Atlanta Smooth Music Festival - June 23rd, 2018
Jazz Music Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing jazz music education in America’s public schools and raising awareness about the importance of jazz music as a part of childhood education.
Our mission is to preserve live jazz music performances and embrace its growth through promotion of concerts, jazz series and festivals in multicultural communities. These events will enhance the diversity and harmony of the smooth jazz community. In conjunction with professional live entertainment, Jazz Music Alliance will foster the artistic and creative endeavors of communities, while promoting the education of America’s major indigenous art form – jazz.
Our goal is to empower people through the universal nature of jazz music by providing communities with opportunities for a rich musical experience. This is achieved through music education programs and by offering established and emerging musicians performance opportunities in a variety of venues and locations, including schools, where they act as mentors to the students.
We also encourage the next generation of performers by providing audiences and performance opportunities, while at the same time enriching the listening experience of the public.
We need your donations to Keep Jazz Music Alive. Some companies will match your donation to a non-profit as well.
