School of Jazz has existed for 12 years. Each year we select a dozen middle/high school jazz bands. We pair each band with a local music professional. We host a live studio recording session with a videographer, photographer, and post taping production. The video is posted on our YouTube Channel. Some student become guest DJ’s. We include SOJ stories in our news programs. This year we followed three students as they performed at the Essentially Ellington Competition in New York.
