Our vision of the future of Kansas City Jazz is a community of jazz supporters who were exposed to jazz in their youth, had opprtunities to learn about jazz, perform jazz, and who grew up with a strong appreciation for Kansas City's unique legacy, and are willing to activiely perpetuate that legacy for the rest of their lives.
Our vision of effective jazz education results in a musician who is able to explore their own musical intuition by learning methods to express that intuition in a framework that can be developed, shared and communicated effectively to fellow musicians and audience members. This is the essence of jazz improvisation.
