JAZZ FOR JUNIORS

PRE-SCHOOL TO PRIMARY JAZZ EDUCATION AND PARTICIPATION

Debuting in 2017, WAYJO’s Jazz for Juniors concerts enraptured young and old audiences alike. We couldn’t keep up with demand, adding new shows throughout the year and selling out each time. So we’re bringing Jazz for Juniors back in 2018!

Designed for children 7 years and under, each school holiday will focus on different aspects of jazz music – with “Meet the Jazz Orchestra” in April, “A Journey Through Jazz” in July, and “Dizzy Disney” in September.

Jazz for Juniors concerts offer child friendly instruments for the kids to try out at the end of each session, plus interactive songs throughout, led by WAYJO’s dynamic band members.

Bring the kids along for some school holiday fun that will open their eyes (and ears) to a whole new world.
