WHAT IS JAZZ FOR KIDS?

Jazz For Kids is an educational program designed to expose, inspire, educate, and engage elementary aged youth in the art form of jazz.

Students will learn about the rich history of jazz in the city of Edmonton while learning to understand and appreciate music they might not hear otherwise.

First kids learn how cool jazz is through educational materials presented in class. Then they are off on an exciting fieldtrip into the world of live jazz music at Edmonton’s premiere jazz venue The Yardbird Suite.

Jazz For Kids shows are energetic, informative and accessible for all who attend. With cross-curricular appeal covering everything from poetry and dance to history and even math.

“The conga drum solo was awesome! I am going to come back here and volunteer when I am old enough”

– Alex, Grade 4

“I enjoyed how they added a song that everyone knew to show how you can turn it into jazz or how pop originated in jazz.”

– Charles, Grade 6
