We're “Jazzed for Kids!”

We're “Jazzed for Kids!”

August 2012 – excited students from KIPP Amp Academy in Brooklyn trekked up to Newport Rhode Island for venerated Newport Jazz Festival to enjoy the sounds of Tedeschi Trucks, Maria Schneider, Kurt Elling and Jason Moran, among others. Acclaimed jazz pianist and composer, Jason Moran, met with the students after his set to discuss the ins and outs of music career, styles, and share some personal history with them. The students could probably relate to his background at a Performing Arts High School in Houston, since their school is the leading Jazz program for junior high and high school in the Manhattan area. He has also agreed to collaborate with them in the coming school year, to visit their band practices and assess their chops.Thank You George Wein (and Newport Festival Foundation) for once again making this possible, for the KIPP students to have access to all this great music in one beautiful iconic spot. It's a field trip that Jazz'd 4 Life is proud to sponsor and the KIPP kids look forward to every year.
To further support the Jazzarts curriculum at the KIPP academy , Jazz'd 4 Life is hosting a private fund raiser in Manhattan October 17. To join us for this incredible evening of music, food, fund raising and more, click here.
