JazzPath music programs are open to all students 10-18 years old. And we now offer an adult program for those over 18. Whether you have been playing your instrument for several years or have never played before, we will place you in an ensemble so you'll learn while playing. Our ensembles can include drums, bass, piano, percussion, woodwinds, trumpet, trombone, guitar and vocals!
Our teaching method allows for several instructors working with each group and our Music Director overseeing all ensembles. Our instructors have many years of schooling and professional playing and have the insight and knowledge to teach young people how to play and interpret jazz. Music selections are based on ensemble ability and style of play.
*JazzPath wants to ensure that any child who wants to play jazz has the opportunity regardless of means. We can offer all programs on a sliding-scale or full scholarship to meet the needs of our families. We can also assist with instrument rental as needed. Please call the office to discuss.
JazzPath in Our Community:
The overarching goal of JazzPath is to bring music to students throughout our community who otherwise would not have access. We will provide no-cost group lessons through local children's organizations, schools, and community centers. Please call our office if your organization would like to work with us!
