Gary Pratt Jazz Scholarship     donate link

After a long and storied career at CSUN, Mr. Pratt will be retiring at the end of the Spring 2019 semester. However, though he will no longer be teaching, his legacy will continue to have an impact on students through the Gary Pratt Jazz Studies Scholarship Fund, created through his generosity. In celebration of his incredible tenure at CSUN and the generations of Jazz musicians that he has helped grow and develop, we ask you to donate to this important scholarship fund, so that financial burdens placed on these students can be lessened, allowing for more of their time to be spent practicing and refining their art.
