Excellence in Jazz Education Award
On the Saturday of every festival there will be four rooms designated for the clinics that occur throughout the day covering a wealth of jazz-related topics.
Students will have the opportunity to track which clinics they observed through a clinic attendance card distributed by their director. These will need to be initialled at the door for each class.
At the 4:30 concert that afternoon, students will submit their cards to be counted. The schools with the highest ratio of clinics attended per student will be eligible to win one of the numerous instruments generously donated to us by Schmitt Music and Morgan Music!
