This year's theme is: Empowerment and Connection Through Jazz and Afro Latin Jazz

Participants from a wide range of experience in the field are welcome, including college students who are relatively new to teaching artist work, as well as educators and artists with a decade of experience or more. Jazz Power Institute provides a safe and challenging learning environment, where breakthroughs are made in understanding the jazz arts in a more comprehensive, personally relevant and engaging way. Jazz Power Institute provides methods for teaching jazz in a culturally authentic way to many different kinds of audiences through multiple modalities of music, dance and theatre. Attendees will experience workshops covering a wide range of age groups from grades PreK-12 to college students and adult learners.

Hands-on, transformational, and multidisciplinary learning experiences will be led by Dr. Eli Yamin (Musician, JPI Managing and Artistic Director), Antoinette Montague (JPI Senior Voice Teacher), James McBride (Author, Musician), Steven Oquendo (Musician, Educator), Alberto Toro (Musician, Educator), Jonathan “JBlak” Troncoso (Musician) and Carmen Morillo (dancer).

Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) credits are available for registered educators as requested.
