The Act-Belong-Commit WAYJO Education Program is an important component of WAYJO’s annual program, and 2017 sees new and exciting changes ahead.

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.

WAYJO’s education resources are available online to further enrich the program of offerings. In 2017, if you or a family member are studying music, check out what WAYJO has to offer.
