The Institute was created in memory of Thelonious Monk, the legendary jazz pianist and composer who believed the best way to learn jazz was from a master of the music. The Institute follows that same philosophy and for the past 20 years has brought young aspiring jazz artists together with renowned jazz musicians. The Institute is devoted to the preservation of jazz and the continued expansion of this truly American musical art form. More information at www.monkinstitute.org
