If you are concerned about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we encourage you to take a look at our resources page, including official links such as on how best to avoid infection or spread, plus mental health resources from Beyond Blue.

The Act-Belong-Commit WAYJO Education Program is an important component of WAYJO’s annual program.

WAYJO tailors its events to the needs of its audiences, from young children to high school students and their teachers, and performances and workshops are designed to suit most educational requirements.

WAYJO invites schools to engage with our musicians and leverage their talent and experience to create quality experiences that enrich classroom or private teaching.

And if your school can’t participate, WAYJO has a number of events that students can attend with family to gain a better understanding of jazz performance.

If you or a family member are studying music, check out what WAYJO has to offer!

The WAYJO Education Program is supported by Healthway promoting the Act-Belong-Commit message.
