How it works
Selected combos get their own monthly coaching session, performance and leadership opportunities and a final performance in the spring at Jazz Alley. Combos also get a photo shoot and social media promotion on Seattle JazzED channels.

In return, combos host a monthly jam session and do 1-3 gigs on behalf of Seattle JazzED in the community. Combos must have one parent/guardian liaison available by cell phone on gig days.

Coaching Schedule
Each combo will get their own professional coach, who will work with them once a month for seven months. Each coaching session runs from 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM on one Friday per month; i.e. Combo 1 gets coached on the first Friday of each month, Combo 2 gets coached on the second Friday of each month, etc.

Paid Gigs
If an All-Star Combo completes 3 community gigs, they will be paid a $30 stipend each for every additional gig booked through Seattle JazzED.

Location
Coaching and jam sessions will take place at the MLK FAME Community Center at 3201 E Republican St in the Madison Valley neighborhood. Gigs can take place anywhere in the Seattle area.

Registration
Open to students in grades 9-12 only. Students can register with a preexisting combo, but may have a kid or two added. Every student must submit a registration form. There is a place on the form to note if you are part of a preexisting combo. Students who don't have a combo yet can still register and be placed in one by JazzED.

Tuition
$250 per student. Payment plans are available when you register.

Financial Aid
Cost should never be a barrier to participation. If you need financial aid to participate, please fill out the online financial aid application before you register. We'll get back to you within 2-3 business days.

If you have any questions or concerns about tuition, financial aid or payment plans, please email Program Coordinator Jordan Leonard at jordan@seattlejazzed.org. Don't be shy. We're here to help!
