Everyone knows that Roosevelt and Garfield High Schools have some of the best high school jazz bands in the country. But what about the young Seattle musicians who don’t live in those neighborhoods? Enter the newly established Seattle Jazz Ed, under the direction of Clarence Acox, Laurie de Koch and Robert Knatt. The group, which meets once a week at Cornish College, pulls children from all over the city to form three jazz bands: beginning, intermediate and advanced. Though tuition is $750, scholarships are available for families in need. You can catch the Seattle Jazz Ed bands performing on December 9 at the Northwest African American Museum.
