Education Overview – Old – San Jose Jazz

There are many benefits
to learning music

Here in Silicon Valley, education is especially important for success. We believe music is critical
to the kind of well-rounded education that will be required in the 21st century. Music education
has been shown to enhance aptitude in mathematics and English, and encourages important skills
of concentration and perseverance. It gives students experience working with others to accomplish
something they couldn’t achieve on their own. It also builds creative problem-solving skills that are
an essential companion to academics.

We can’t do it without you!

San Jose Jazz is only able to do our important education work with the support of people like you.

Looking ahead

San Jose Jazz programs seek to serve the ever-evolving needs of Silicon Valley’s residents, so we are always experimenting with new ideas. In the last few years we have experimented with adult ensembles, film screenings and lectures. Have an idea? Run it by us.
