Youth Programs

Youth Ensembles

We offer small and large weekly ensemble classes for beginning, intermediate, and advanced middle and high school instrumentalists, giving you the chance to make music with your peers and improve your skills in the process.

Our ensembles perform in the Jazzschool Student Performance Series at the end of each quarter, and it’s totally free and open to the public. Invite your friends, family, and anyone else who loves great music to come and see you shine!

You’ll need to go through a placement audition but don’t worry; it’s just a formality to make sure you’re placed in the right ensemble for your skill level. Just follow the audition requirements and application instructions, and you’ll be on your way!
