In the Fall of 2016, the Foundation announced a new partnership with the Rotary Club of Edmonds Daybreakers called the Music Lab. Together, the two organizations raise funds in support of music education programs in the Edmonds School District.
“With their generous support, new and innovative programs will be designed to strengthen already outstanding instrumental and vocal jazz groups throughout the district, and to create increased opportunities for younger students to engage in the art of jazz” said District Music Director, Scott Barnes.

Current programs benefiting from Music Lab Grants include:
- Mountlake Terrace High School’s Creative Music Adventures partnership with Michael Stegner that will focus on improvisation and composition strategies.
- Edmonds School District Middle School Girls Jazz Band which will focus on creating equity in the music program.
- Scriber Lake High School will pilot a new music program that will include professional clinicians and professional development for both students and teachers.
