We believe girls belong in music, especially in jazz. At this half day workshop, you'll make friends, connect with amazing women role models, and come away being inspired to improve and develop your musical skills.

You'll build more confidence when taking a solo and improvising. We'll work on teaching you the basics and you'll build on them in a supportive atmosphere. We're here to help you along the way!
