About the Course
Want to be inspired, get more involved in the world of jazz and improvised music, foster relationships with emerging and established musicians, engage with a likeminded creative community and develop your musical skills and career path through informal performances, rehearsals and discussions?
Young Women In Jazz aims to address the gender imbalance in jazz music by giving young students an opportunity to hear, interact, converse, and perform with women who are following professional pathways in jazz and improvised music. Workshop sessions will incorporate a repertoire of blues, original tunes, jazz standards, modal, ballads, standard swing, improvised and songwriting development.
Students will gather one Sunday per month, with the program culminating in a performance in 9 December with the Melbourne Women's International Jazz Festival.
9 December (performance)
