IASJ: the International Association of Schools of Jazz

The IASJ connects students, educators and directors of jazz studies on a worldwide level. For over 25 years schools of jazz that offer toplevel professional jazz education are connected through the IASJ. Every year an IASJ Jazz Meeting takes place in a different country in the world. During one week around 100 students, educators and staff people learn, teach, perform and network. Relations between students, educators and staff people once started during IASJ Jazz Meetings lead to longlife succesful professional collaborations.

“The future of jazz is connected to jazz education
and the IASJ is the chain.”


 

The IASJ is a long standing member of the IMC, the International Music Coucil, affiliated with UNESCO.

The IASJ, founded in 1989, has brought together over 3000 students, teachers and directors of jazz studies from all over the world.
