Space Coast Jazz Society Offers A Free Youth Jazz Workshop

Keeping the Jazz Beat Alive on the Space Coast

The Space Coast Jazz Society education outreach program focuses on students from elementary grades right on up to college. We offer scholarships to young musicians who plan to pursue an education in music especially jazz. From time to time we bring live jazz to elementary and middle schools, often giving young people their first taste of America’s original art form. Hopefully, this is more than just a fun experience for the youngsters. In some cases, it makes them want to hear a lot more jazz at home and perhaps makes them want to become a jazz artist.

This summer the SCJS is providing Brevard County students  with an opportunity to join free jazz workshops held every Saturday from 11 AM to 1 PM. beginning on July 11, 2015.  These workshops will be given at the Horn Section located at 1408 Highland  Avenue, Melbourne, Fl. and will be taught by experienced musicians.  Please complete and return the registration form and if you have any questions please contact SCJS Director Dorothy Holley at dbholley29@yahoo.com.

Students are always welcome free at our monthly concerts.

The SCJS is a non profit 501 (c) (3) organization.
