"The memory of things gone is important to a jazz musician. Things like old folks singing in the moonlight in the back yard on a hot night or something said long ago.”

- Louis Armstrong     

Donor Support

Student tuition only covers a portion of the Jazz Arts Studio’s operating expenses. The difference comes from contributions made by alumni, parents and friends who believe in our efforts and wish to see them continue.

Support for the Jazz Arts Studio can be sent by check made payable to Eric Zadan:
