The Jazz Angels has affected the lives of countless young musicians and their families.
Please read what some have stated:
"Jazz Angels is an amazing organization. My son plays trumpet and started with them in the 6th grade (he is a 9th grader now). He had just started playing and lacked confidence. Barry and Albert (the instructors) had him try out, and you would have thought the sun had come right out to shine on my kiddos face when they told him he made it! They put him in a group with other beginners. I was nervous for him, but Barry and Albert have the biggest hearts! They wrote music at just the right level for the kids and then loved and encouraged them the whole time. My son was soloing at his first gig!!! It was such an amazing experience for him, and it certainly warmed my mommy-heart! If your kiddo is looking to gain some confidence in music, wants to learn more about Jazz, and just play a little more often, then this is the organization for them! They meet 1x a week and have a few gigs a session (1 session per season of the year). They are jazzy wonderfulness personified!!"
"We have been involved with the Jazz Angels since inception, and found it to be a wonderful group of passionate individuals dedicated to the continuation of the jazz genre through education and mentoring of young musicians. We've seen kids go from tentative players to full-blown musicians during their years in the program, all the while growing as people and as members of a group larger than themselves."
"I have loved the Jazz Angels since we first learned of them. My daughters both went thru the program and I’m positive it contributed immensely to their success. Now they play at CSULB and still LOVE jazz!
Thank you Jazz Angels"
"Incredible group. Incredible and kind teachers who know how to gently inspire young musicians.
My kids had played their instruments for years, but when they joined The Jazz Angels all sorts of bells went off in their heads. Now they are inspired to learn more about playing with other musicians and learning new instruments.
I highly recommend that you see their performances as they sound so professional. And I highly recommend, that if you're a parent in the Long Beach area, that you sign your pre-teen or teen up for this incredible nonprofit group. We are hooked."
"My son started at Jazz Angels as a timid 6th grader, just learning to play the sax. He is now a confident 9th grader who loves Jazz improvisation! I believe this is due to the fun and nurturing experience he's had at Jazz Angels. Albert and Barry are the best!"
"Wonderful program. My son learned team work at the practices and built his confidence at all the gigs. Barry makes it fun and has amazing patience with the kids. One of the best experiences of my son's childhood."
"I'm a student and I've been in jazz angels for almost 10 years now. Legitimately, I can't recommend a more positive and nurturing environment for kids to not just learn about jazz, but to grow confidence and one's ability to work with others. Both teachers, Barry and Albert, have become like family to me. Trust me, you won't regret joining!"
"A great program. I love hearing my kids play awesome Jazz, soloing, performing in a small group, sight reading. Highly recommended."
"I wish I could give extra stars :)! My son just finished up his first session with them and it has been such a great experience. He was looking for a challenge and to get out of his musical comfort zone and this was a great environment for that and he has learned so much. We cannot wait for the next session and many more after that!"
"Great way to expose young kids to Jazz music in a friendly and entertaining environment."
"Kind, patient, knowledgeable teachers. Realistic practice and commitment expectations. Affordable. Plus, both my teenage boys have a love and appreciation for jazz now. Recommend highly!
Just wish they had a HB location because, for me, the drive was killer. But so worth it!"
"My son has been a Jazz Angel for three years now. He has improved his jazz skills but more importantly he has grown as a leader and person. We LOVE the Jazz Angels!"
"Amazing program that has a heart for students and the community. The directors and staff are wonderful. The programs are exciting and innovative. The organization truly serves the community. One of the best programs I've ever had the pleasure of working with."
