Emerson Jazz in the Schools

Made possible through generous funding from Emerson and support from the E. Desmond Lee Fine Arts Education Collaborative, the Emerson Jazz in the Schools program brings visiting Jazz at the Bistro artists to area schools at no cost. The artists participate in a number of different activities, including performances, master classes and clinics.

Artists are only available on Friday afternoons and are booked on a first come, first-served basis. Artists that are no longer available will be crossed off.

Ticket request forms are fill-able Pdfs. You can simply type right in the form, save, and email it in to andy@jazzstl.org. If you are using a Mac, do not use the default preview program as it will not display your information properly. Information for faxing and mailing in your requests is also listed on the form.

Questions can be directed to Andy Ament, Education Associate, at 314.881.3093 or andy@jazzstl.org.

Teachers, be sure to check out Jazz St. Louis’s Preparatory Lessons (under the link to the left), specially designed for schools participating in the Emerson Jazz in the Schools program. These fun and engaging lessons will teach your students about jazz in advance of the performance.
