The Jazz & Creative Institute cultivates musicianship, artistic development and creative entrepreneurship for building a life in the arts through educational programs, mentoring and performances.

We are a jazz school with private lessons, jam sessions, professional and student ensembles. We are performing arts presenters with a listening room venue for jazz.

We thought the experience with KYJO was just amazing for our son! Through his interactions with other students who were also serious about music study, it helped to give him what he needed to push himself to the next level as a musician. Through his relationships with the staff and guest clinicians, he gained a broad and deeper understanding of some of the expectations and experiences of a professional musician. The KJYO experience also helped grow his confidence to take the next steps not only as a musician, but in his life as a young adult. Thanks Benje, Ashley and Staff; KYJO has had a remarkable impact this year and we look forward to what will happen for your program in the future!
