The Jazzscape Junior Jazz Foundation’s “Play It Forward” program will provide music instruments for children and teens, with a passion for Jazz, in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties. The “Play It Forward” program will work with the Band Directors and Music Staff at the local school level, in each county, to provide instruments to students.

“Play It Forward” will provide an easy way for teens and their parents, or anyone with either an extra instrument or discontinued interest, to donate instruments, and receive a tax deduction for their donation. They will know that their donation is improving the life of a child, locally, with the gift of music… Jazz.

A child who expresses an interest in Jazz and the wish to play an instrument may contact their Band Director or a member of the Music Staff. They will jointly assess the request of each child. Children who are selected will be matched with an instrument via the “Play It Forward” database. The instrument will then be delivered to the school and presented to the child along with a personalized letter from Bob Mendes, founder of The Jazzscape Junior Jazz Foundation.
