Education & Outreach

A core part of the Great American Songbook Foundation’s mission is to introduce and promote the Great American Songbook to the next generation of young musicians.  Aside our high school summer music program (The Songbook Academy), the Songbook Foundation offers a host of educational resources and programs year-round.

By developing an effective and entertaining curriculum-based program, including in-school performances, the Foundation reaches children of all ages by introducing them to the music and composers of the Great American Songbook. Through entertainment, students can appreciate the music of the Songbook while also learning the cultural and purely American historical context that is integrated seamlessly within its legacy.
