REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR Spring 2021
Join our virtual community of young musicians in 2021! The Columbus Youth Jazz Program is keeping the spirit of jazz, music-making and creativity thriving during the pandemic with a semester of virtual sessions. Our instrumentalists and vocalists will take part in lessons, view & interact with artists during live performances, participate in masterclasses, and learn to play tunes every jazz musician needs to know. Beginning with an informal audition on January 3rd, we will meet every Sunday through the spring semester virtually on Zoom. Stay connected to Youth Jazz online, and we’ll be back “in-person” before you know it!
New for this semester: All students will receive complimentary access to JAG TV, Jazz Arts Group’s “virtual stage” for its 2021 performances, including PBJ & Jazz, Jazz at the Lincoln and Jazz at the Southern. You and your household will have the opportunity to join our virtual audience for performances by local and internationally renowned artists, as well as YOUR Columbus Jazz Orchestra.
For all musicians in grades 7-12. Each student will receive a student guidebook, virtual materials, playlists and more. No matter your experience level, this program is designed to keep you playing and developing.
The spring semester of the Columbus Youth Jazz program is “Pay What You Can”. In these times, we understand how the current pandemic could be creating a financial strain for you and your family. By asking families to “pay what you can,” we are able to ensure that all students in central Ohio are able to play music together, regardless of their financial situation.
This 18-week semester of the Columbus Youth Jazz program is valued at $125 per participant. What you choose to pay will help us compensate our teaching artists for their time and effort. Please enter the total amount that you wish to be charged in the registration form.
