El Paso Jazz Girls is a non-profit organization for young female musicians to learn about jazz, meet each other, play together, and create a support system. Our mission is to empower girls in a supportive community that fosters self-expression, confidence, and collaboration through music education and performance.
El Paso Jazz Girls is a resource for young females. Whether it's improvising, booking your own gigs, navigating college auditions, or needing support for any of your creative endeavors - El Paso Jazz Girls is here for you.
We use an inclusive definition of "female" and "girls" and welcome trans girls, as well as genderqueer, non-binary, and gender non-conforming students.
Please explore this website! There are resources with media links, suggested listening, improvisation 101 packets, and blog posts. We also share upcoming events and program dates/details on the Program page. If you don't see something that you are interested in learning about, or have something cool we should check out, send us an email and connect with us!
