BSR Home > Youth Programs
We provide an environment where young people can learn to play Traditional Jazz and improvisation in front of a live audience. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and we provide educational opportunities to both youth and young adults. Every year, our club sends up to 10 young people to the Sacramento or Mammoth Lakes youth jazz camps. Our Club has also sponsored youth bands to participate in the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Youth Band Festival (TJYBF) for the last four years. Some of these youth bands have become award-winning, full-time musical groups, including the Red Skunk Jipzee Swing band featuring Molly Reeves and Justin Au, , and the BSR Hotshots. These bands have all been featured at our own Jubilee by the Sea. To download a BSR Scholarship Application, click here. Student BSR memberships are only $10.00 per year!
For older youth and adults, (21 and over), check out the website for the New Orleans Trad Jazz Camp. There is also an adult camp in San Diego in January.
