Milestones Youth Jazz Workshop is a JazzFresno project offering jazz performance and education opportunities to kids in California’s Central San Joaquin Valley.
Any young musician in the upper elementary grades through high school is invited to participate. The programs are specifically targeted to kids who do not have access to jazz programs in their home schools.
The Milestones mission is to ensure that every child has the opportunity to participate in America’s true original art form and to develop the self-confidence, social skills and life-long memories that come with that participation.
The Milestones Youth Jazz Workshop inaugural season began in September 2012.
To learn more about the program or to find out how you can participate, either as a student musician, program supporter, volunteer or educator, contact the project director.
JazzFresno is a private non-profit 501(c)3 organization with a mission to promote jazz in the Central San Joaquin Valley through education and performance.
Lead by an all-volunteer board of directors, JazzFresno sponsors and promotes several ongoing jazz initiatives in the Central Valley, including:
- JazzFresno concert series, bringing jazz artists of international acclaim to Valley concert stages.
- Jazz at the Library, a monthly educational series held in conjunction with Fresno County Public Libraries, that offers a deeper look at jazz history, music and musicians.
