Help us make a difference in Kid's Lives!

Pacific NW Blues in the Schools is a 501-C3 tax exempt non-profit organization in the Greater Seattle area that is one of the most successful and comprehensive "Blues in the Schools" programs existing in the US today.

Our programs are taught by professional blues musicians and teachers from the Northwest, and we offer our programs to local public school systems, private schools systems, community centers and institutions. Pacific Northwest Blues in the Schools seeks to provide a positive alternative activity for the youth of the Northwest, with many of our programs conducted during "prime risk," after-school hours.

Blues in the schools mission statement:

The mission of PNBIS is to design and deliver an interdisciplinary musical experience for students that, through playing, singing and writing Blues, will also teach them the history and heritage of this original African/American art form.

PNBIS will accomplish this mission by.

2) Showing the role of Blues as one of the roots of American music
3) Providing the opportunity for ongoing instruction and performance to maintain interest and skills.
