Welcome to the Teen Jazz Project! This is a community-based jazz program devoted to promoting live jazz music in the Triple Cities area. We believe that music is an essential part of any thriving community. To this end we are offering an opportunity for up and coming teen musicians in our community to learn from experienced musicians and music educators. The directors and mentors involved in this project hope to pass along a love for jazz music to the next generation.
Our goal is to provide a welcoming environment where area teen musicians can learn to play, improvise and perform the unique art form that is jazz.
Any teen instrumentalist* or vocalist ages 13 - 19 is welcome to audition. Please click Contact for more information and for an online application form.
*Piano, Trumpet, Saxophone, Trombone, Drum Set, Bass, Guitar, Vibes
