For the fifth time the International Association of Jazz Educators (IAJE) provides an attractive and educational jazz program at the festival with workshops, jam sessions and concerts school bands. The organization, which makes it it's object to develop jazz music worldwide through education and accompaniment, hands out scholarships to jazz students, scouts for talents and looks for mentors for them. The IAJE also commands composition assignments. This year the Spiegeltent again functions as the ground for education in an informal setting. The IAJE already has supplied numbers of young musicians who get the chance to play music in an unconstrained way. There are Student Jam Sessions and several workshops with famous artists performing at the festival, like Frank Morgan and Slide Hampton.
