Support The Jazz Academy

The Jazz Arts Group believes in the power of music to transform lives and is committed to offering lifelong learning opportunities for individuals of all ages, interests, backgrounds and abilities. In 2008, the Jazz Arts Group launched the Jazz Academy, declaring our commitment to serving the Columbus community with educational programming for all ages, using jazz as the vehicle.

Since its early beginnings, we are proud to have served over 100,000 people, from pre-K children to lifelong learners, at our home inside the Lincoln Theatre Complex. The Jazz Academy Space is not only home to the Columbus Youth Jazz (CYJ) Program, as well as other classes, workshops, and camps, but also the center of all activities and rehearsals related to the CYJ Program. Through your financial gift, you can help us continue to grow our impact for the youth in our region, paving the way to a lifelong passion for music and the arts.

How Will Your Contribution Help?

With your generous gift, you will help further the Jazz Academy’s commitment to offering innovative educational programming, partnerships, and resources, such as:

  • The Columbus Youth Jazz Program, which serves nearly 100 students every year, placing them in one of four ensembles with the goal that each individual walks away with skills that transcend music itself, as the program represents the highest level of teamwork and collaboration.
  • The Jazz in Schools program, which aims to reach students at every level with interactive programs such as in-school assemblies, instrumental music workshops, and pre-K classroom activities.
  • Partnerships with organizations including the YMCA of Central Ohio, Columbus City Schools, and the Salvation Army, that allow us to serve the developmental needs of children in all areas of our community.
  • We’ve Got Rhythm, which helps to inspire our aging population by creating pathways for nostalgia and reminiscence, ultimately bettering their quality of life.

Learn more about the diverse programming and initiatives you can help support through your contribution.
