Welcome to the New Jersey Association for Jazz Education (NJAJE), the home of jazz education for the State of New Jersey. We wish to offer each visitor as much information as we can to help you along the path of reaching your desired goals as a student, performer, educator, administrator, parent or jazz supporter. The NJAJE is committed to guiding and assisting the journey of students, teachers, and all who appreciate the art form of Jazz.
The NJAJE meets this ongoing challenge in its presentation of a variety of educational activities, presentations and opportunities including regional and all state jazz and jazz choir ensembles, small jazz combo festivals, one-on-one educational opportunities, and much more. Please feel free to browse our site, explore the many opportunities available to students, performers, and professionals, and support jazz education in New Jersey.
If you are in need of any further information or assistance, please reach out to our board of directors to help you with your quest.
