Help Us To Support And Nurture The Creative Impulse In Young Musicians!
The Center for Improvisational Music provides a unique opportunity for developing musicians to grow through interaction with the finest practitioners of the art of improvised music. This is only possible through the generous support of individuals and institutional sponsors committed to keeping the arts alive and strong.
Your donation will make our educational programs possible by helping us to cover operating expenses (including facility rental, teacher compensation, and scholarship funding) and to establish a fund to create a year-round school and performance center housed in a permanent location.

• Recreates the atmosphere of close student-mentor interaction in which improvisational music is best taught and disseminated
• Provides a vital alternative to the options for jazz education found in existing music schools and conservatories
• Emphasizes the development of individual voices and unique contributions, the most characteristic element of America’s heritage of improvisational music
