Milestones Jazz


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.

Milestones is pleased to offer a limited number of partial scholarships for Summer Jazz 2017. These scholarships are typically granted in amounts of $50 or $100. It is possible that larger amounts could be awarded if additional funds become available or if the applicant pool is smaller than anticipated.

Scholarship applicants requesting a $50 or $100 scholarship are notified within five days. Those requesting larger amounts will be notified in mid-May after all scholarship applications are due.

To apply for a scholarship, fill out the scholarship application online. The scholarship application must be received by May 15, 2017.
