This experience has helped me to build confidence, not being afraid of playing a solo, and plus it’s helped me with team work and team building.  We have to communicate, and that has helped me in other areas, not just music… It’s just so much fun!  – Veronica, student

How does JazzArts Charlotte determine who receives the scholarships?

Sponsorships are allocated to students with either the greatest financial need or merit-based.  JazzArts Charlotte seeks student musicians who are highly motivated and eager to take advantage of a free music scholarship opportunity through the JazzArts Academy.  Student scholarship recipients must meet the eligibility requirements of no lower than a 2.5 GPA, good JazzArts Academy and school attendance.  Students who possess all of these qualities will get the most out of the program and will allow your generous sponsorship to have the greatest impact.

A “Composer Level” donation of $500 covers the full cost of one student to participate in a Fall or Spring Ensemble program.

Benefits for a Scholarship-level Donation

  • Invitation to an uplifting JazzArts Youth Ensemble concert.
  • JazzArts Charlotte “Composer Level” membership benefits
  • Annual sponsor recognition on JazzArts Charlotte website and name listed in JAZZ ROOM playbill

To support JazzArts Charlotte is a true honor… I’ve always been a big proponent of music education, because it teaches kids much more than music.”  Terence Blanchard, 5-time Grammy award-winning trumpeter/composer
