Music and fine arts—and particularly improvisational jazz—offer opportunities to motivate and provide youth with skills essential to their future roles as leaders in their chosen fields of endeavor.

The Conrad O. Johnson Music and Fine Arts Foundation offers students unique enrichment through workshops, master classes, seminars, group lessons, and performances through its Regional Youth Orchestra.

The foundation encourages students to develop the disciplines necessary for pursuit of excellence in the arts and has donated over $80,000 in scholarship support and instruments to Houston-area students.
