“I strongly believe a student is nothing without a great teacher/ mentor. JEN brings together jazz musicians and educators to foster a great environment for students to learn and thrive. JEN is an integral part of a student's inspiration, performance experience and future.”

—Grace Kelly (Internationally-known Saxophonist and JEN mentor)

How to apply
