There has been abundant research that supports the importance of music education for children, with evidence proving that musical ability correlates to reading and math aptitude, and overall academic performance. Music education increases language development, brain activity, memory, math skills and an understanding of art and the world.

Your contribution makes a difference, in helping impoverished youth of the Dominican Republic with structured music programs that enhance their overall education and life opportunities. FEDUJAZZ currently provides 150 students with ongoing classes and over a thousand children benefit annually from workshops held during the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival.

We welcome you to join us at FEDUJAZZ to see our programs in action, and appreciate your support.
