Jupiter Band Instruments member of the KHS America family of brands, has once again partnered with the John Coltrane International Jazz and Blues Festival’s student essay contest.

This is the fifth consecutive year Jupiter Band Instruments have partnered with the festival.

The student essay contest is an important part of the John Coltrane International Jazz and Blues Festival as part of a goal to promote the benefits of music education and the positive influence music has on study habits of the youth of today.

Students are asked to submit an essay explaining their music aspirations, affinities and needs. Winners receive a free Jupiter band instrument of their choosing. To date, the festival has awarded over 65 instruments to aspiring students at a retail value of over $100,000.

The new Jupiter instruments are presented, on stage, to middle and high school students who write the winning essays explaining what jazz music means in their lives, which instrument they would like to win and how a new instrument would help them achieve their goals.
