Student Engagement

We develop programs to engage and expose students to the traditions of folk and jazz music, including our Newport Jazz Assembly Band, Jazz Student Tickets and more.


SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES

The Newport Jazz Assembly band was created to bring the music of the Newport Jazz Festival to students in elementary through high school. The group has traveled to public schools in RI, CT and MA.


STUDENT TICKETS

We offer discounted tickets to high school and college-aged students to provide access to the Newport Jazz Festival.

STUDENT BAND PERFORMANCES

We provide a unique opportunity for students to perform and meet with other musicians in a professional setting at the Newport Folk and Newport Jazz Festivals.

 
They not only loved the music...but the concert sparked an engaging conversation during advisory about the history and roots of jazz.
