BECOMING A KCAYJ FELLOW

YOUTH JAZZ will announce the individual names and respective instruments of current fellows along with their school music program name.

Significant music educators like band directors and private instructors will also be acknowledged.

KCAYJ appreciates the fact that most of the leading jazz artists working in the field today significantly benefited from the collective efforts of the entire jazz community.

We believe it is important for balance and perspective to acknowledge the involvement of our music educator colleagues who teach and mentor KCAYJ FELLOWS.
