JazzArts Charlotte is excited to bring Charlotte this highly acclaimed national jazz program for preschoolers.

Children and their parents or caregivers sing, move and play with the soulful rhythms and melodies of great jazz.  These classes are produced in collaboration with the Teachers College at Columbia University and have been offered for 15 years through Jazz at Lincoln Center.

The WeBop teachers will lead children to a greater understanding of music, their national musical heritage, and ultimately, themselves.

WeBop curriculum is customized by age-group to build on the developmental strengths of the students.



Dawn Anthony, teacher.  Music educator, performer and author.

Sean Higgins, accompanist.  Pianist, composer and music educator.
