ATLANTA -- Jazz legend Al Jarreau will bring his decades of knowledge to a master class at a southwest Atlanta high school.

Jarreau, in conjunction with Jazz 91.9 WCLK and the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre Foundation's ArtsBridge program, will host the jazz class at Benjamin E. Mays High School on Thursday, Sept. 20.

The visit is part of the Jazz in the Classroom initiative, which aims to create a dialogue about jazz, music lessons and the radio industry. Its goal is to curb the dropout rate and emphasize the significance of arts and music education.

Jarreau will be at Mays High from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 20.
