Louisiana Association for Jazz Education
has been in existence since 2008!
Our mission and purpose is simple: to continue the growth of jazz and jazz education within the state of Louisiana. LAJE serves the band directors in starting jazz ensembles, selection of music, teaching techniques, guest appearances as clinicians and performers, etc. Its influence is highly visible at the Louisiana Music Educators Association Conference for which LAJE sponsors the All State High School Jazz Ensemble, along with guest artists and clinicians.
