Mission Statement

The Missouri Association for Jazz Education exists to support the efforts of jazz educators in Missouri, and to promote jazz education in school music programs as well as the jazz community at large. 

To that end, the Missouri Association for Jazz Education will:

  • Provide the means and structure to conduct the Missouri All State Jazz Ensemble, and support the related All District Jazz Ensembles;
  • Encourage and provide educational opportunities for students, teachers, enthusiasts, and the community through clinics, camps, and appropriate materials;
  • Provide opportunities to perform jazz, and to hear live jazz;
  • Encourage increased awareness of jazz education through communication to members, publicity, and recognition of outstanding accomplishments in jazz education;
  • Support outreach programs designed to engage the music industry, support community efforts to promote jazz, and encourage continuing education and performance in jazz for adults and others.
