Jazz Workshop, Inc. JAZZ FOR TOTS

Posted by Jaki Young on Monday, January 25, 2016
    Our instructional programs not only provide lessons for youth of all age groups, adults as well benefit from the our instructional model.  All students are provided the seeds for self-efficacy, self-esteem, and clear vision of creativity; that elevates, and instigate, constructive behavior patterns within the youth's psychosocial development, and the adult acquires a sense of  confident community building. 

    Research studies find that music lessons prior to age six enhance brain development, and with continual hands on application, students who have this advantage are found to perform better academically and socially!

    Student recitals are held quarterly in order to give the participant an opportunity to display their talents and to gain experience in performing before a live audience. Our professional music instructors intertwine literacy and math within the learning syllabus, while simultaneously provide motivation and incentives to achieve the skills necessary for playing music, and enrich constructive character growth.

    Unique to the Jazz Workshop Inc. is the big band. Students are able to participate in the band and learn how to read music and to improvise. The band consists of both young and mature working musicians who collaborate and perform for local community events.
