The Tucson Jazz Music Foundation (TJMF) sponsors this 3-week Jazz Music Intensive for girls, beginners through advanced levels. Beginners must have minimal instrument proficiency.
While you are learning to play ‘jazz’— a music genre originating in New Orleans -- you will also learn about ‘women in jazz,’ the culture and history, and ways to be ‘empowered’ in this male-dominated ‘music scene.’
Levels determined by ability, not age:
Level I (Beginners/Some Exp) meet Mondays & Wednesdays. Level II (Int/Adv) meet Tuesdays & Thursdays.
Intensive culminates with a public presentation. Field trips to hear ‘live jazz’ music in Tucson will be organized. Schedule is subject to change. $30 Registration/Supply Fee. Enrollment is online, and includes audition submission requirements. Enroll by May 15 to insure you’ll get a T-shirt!
