Jazz Workshop

The Jazz Workshop is our entry level Jazz program designed to introduce young musicians with an interest in Jazz to the elements and practice of the Jazz artform. Students will be introduced to Jazz through a holistic approach combining performance in ensembles, large ensemble and combo, as well as an introduction to Jazz history and theory through critical listening to the masters of the music. Instrumental skills will be honed through interaction with our faculty of world class Jazz musicians who have a deep interest in sharing their knowledge, experience and wisdom with their students. The Jazz Workshop will give the students an opportunity to build a firm foundation in Jazz performance, history and theory to prepare them to move on to more advanced ensembles at NJYS Jazz and beyond.

Open to all instruments.
