The Jazz and Creative Institute has developed JazzStart, an innovative jazz workshop for a group of up to 21 teens that teaches musical skills, creative thinking, and entrepreneurship. This week-long mentoring and performance program focuses on the fundamentals of jazz, improvisation, and ensemble playing alongside the art of personal expression and how to create musical opportunities in the wider community. Led by professional musician teaching artists, it’s the education of these teens and the sparking of their unique gifts that shows them how to integrate music into their lifelong pursuits.
JazzStart will return in the summer of 2019.
We are always scheming and planning some new concepts! Join our mailing list via our contact page to stay tuned on future programs and projects of JCI.
