The Star Jasmine Music Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization established in 1996 in Santa Barbara, California. The passing of a young musician, Jasmine, inspired the foundation in her honor.
Through JAMSMUSIC (Jasmine Alternative Music School) our foundation provides a nurturing environment for youth to explore music offering instruction, rehearsal space, a complete range of musical instruments and a state of the art Pro-Tools recording studio.
Studies have shown that music education helps with self-esteem, social integration and academic achievement. JAMSMUSIC serves at risk youth, outreach programs, hospitals and schools including Girls Inc., Pathpoint, San Marcos High School and the Braille Institute.
