Jazz Education Abroad – iJazzMusic.com
In 2012, Jazz Education Abroad (JEA) was formed as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Its purpose is to reach out to countries in the Middle East, Asia, South America, Africa and Europe to present Jazz Education Festivals and Jazz Workshops as a way to increase each country’s exposure to Jazz.
In November 2018, Jazz Education Abroad decided to form a non-profit jazz music publishing company (iJazzMusic.com), which would increase the visibility of its composers and arrangers, and assist Jazz Education Abroad in presenting these festivals and workshops.
The composers and arrangers invited to join iJazzMusic.com are some of the most outstanding writers from Europe, Asia, and South America, as well as selected composers and arrangers from the United States.
Our marketing plan is focused on Europe, Asia, and South America, where downloadable printed music is not readily available, but where there are outstanding schools, communities, and professional jazz ensembles. In addition, having new jazz materials available from composers and arrangers in Europe, Asia, and South America, as well as selected composers and arrangers from the United States jazz community, will be very exciting and welcome for jazz educators in the United States.
As an added feature, the JEA faculty and staff, the JEA Board of Directors, and the JEA Advisory Board have free downloadable hand-outs, articles, and information about jazz education, jazz ensembles, jazz performance and jazz master classes at www.jazzeducationabroad.org/education
