WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN KEEP MUSIC EDUCATION ALIVE AND THRIVING IN SCHOOLS!

Funding for music education as a core part of the curriculum is under constant threat. THE LIVING JAZZ CHILDREN’S PROJECT (LJCP) provides a completely free of charge, full year music education and performance program for Oakland public elementary schools with little or no access to the arts.

LJCP is specifically designed to support the OUSD Band/Orchestra program that begins in the 4th grade by providing age-appropriate developmental music exposure and a strong rhythmic foundation while also teaching children how music is a profound vehicle for cultural identity and social change. LJCP encourages and inspires young students to continue their music education, while providing an important musical foundation necessary for all future musical endeavors.

Living Jazz believes that exposure to the creative arts is a profound and necessary component of each child’s education and development. The Living Jazz Children's Project provides this exposure, along with education of how music is a positive vehicle for social and cultural pride.
