The Jazz Connection is organized exclusively for charitable and music education purposes, more specifically to promote musical development through training and performance and enhance awareness of a variety of music styles by working primarily with young musicians.
We are strictly a volunteer group; all participants including the students, professionals, and myself give up Sunday afternoons to spend time together learning this art form. We do not collect fees to be a part of the group and no one gets paid; all practices and performances are on a voluntary basis.
There are three ways to help The Jazz Connection provide free music education to students across North Houston: DONATE, SCOUT, and PROMOTE.
We are a non-profit 501.C3 entity, with the purpose of giving outstanding student musicians exposure to a comprehensive jazz study curriculum and allowing them to reinvest their knowledge and talents through performances in the community.
