Savannah Music Festival Hosts Open Enrollment Period for FREE SMF Jazz Academy through Aug. 22

Savannah Music Festival (SMF), a leading nonprofit performing arts organization, is currently accepting applications for the 2021-2022 SMF Jazz Academy, a tuition-free, year-long program for Savannah-Chatham County Public School System (SCCPSS) students in grades five through 12.

SMF Jazz Academy is Savannah’s only free after-school jazz program designed to empower students by instilling life-long skills of academic, social and musical achievement. The open enrollment period will run through August 22, 2021.

The SMF Jazz Academy program is designed for students at all music levels. Since SCCPSS is hosting in-person classes for the 2021-2022 school year, SMF Jazz Academy will offer in-person instruction as well.

All students participating in the program will have at least one rehearsal a week as well as one private lesson on their instrument. SMF Jazz Academy students will also perform at the end of each semester, participate in monthly jam sessions and work with local jazz musicians in master classes.

SMF Jazz Academy is currently accepting beginning, intermediate and advanced students in grades five through 12. Interested families and students are encouraged to sign up for a short, in-person placement interview, which will take place August 23-25. Previous musical experience is not required, and free instrument rentals are available, if needed.

Enrollment applications are currently being accepted to the SMF Jazz Academy.
