CCJA is a unique non-profit organization dedicated to empowering youth to creatively express themselves through the language of jazz. CCJA programs are mentor-based,  enabling students to study with professional musicians of the highest caliber. CCJA students grow musically while experiencing an environment of connection, respect, inclusivity, and cooperation, all of which are embedded within the fabric and history of jazz itself. Our unique programs are designed to benefit various levels of musicians. For those who are considering music as a career, CCJA offers tremendous advantages, and many of our students are admitted to prestigious college programs, receive impressive scholarships, and begin their careers with a definite head start. For those students who want to explore their musical interests but not necessarily make a career of it, CCJA programs enrich their lives by giving them a creative outlet, increased confidence, communication skills, relationships with like-minded people, and the joy of music.

CCJA is an SCFD Tier 3 organization! Thank you to the SCFD for their support…we are fortunate to live in an area where the arts and culture are supported this way.

CCJA would like to thank and acknowledge theCommunity Foundation of Northern Virginia SCFD Denver- Alan M. & Nathalie P. VoorheesFund for their support!  cfnova.org
