JazzArts Youth Ensemble + Workshops

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fall 2020 live session is cancelled. Please see the education tab for online courses offered. Please check back later for information on the Spring 2021 session.

This applied program offered to students in grades 7-12 who want to continue improving their individual skills within the context of a small jazz ensemble. The 12-week (2-3 hour) sessions provide students the opportunity to grow their individual skills within a supportive and relaxed ensemble environment, with a concentration on exploring jazz styles, standard repertoire, jazz improvisation, and history.

The ensembles bring students together from a variety of backgrounds and skill levels to create a fun and motivating applied learning experience. Workshop participants perform for community events, including an end-of-session public concert. The workshops are open to ALL instruments including vocals.

Registration is open.  Once the registration process is complete, you will be notified with your audition time.

Students at all levels, with at least one year experience in a school band or private lessons, are welcome! Four skill levels are offered, and auditions are held for placement at the appropriate skill level.
