FALL 2017 Session Placement Auditions:

Youth jazz


The JAI Youth Jazz Workshops (Levels I, II, III, & IV) are for 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 explore 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.
