The Nashville Jazz Workshop is excited to launch a new series for children and families in the community, Jazz AM. The series of free Saturday morning programs offers a fun, interactive jazz concert for young people featuring music, puppets, improvisation, rhythm, and movement! The program, facilitated by trained professionals and Jazz musicians, will engage students, encourage creativity, promote collaboration, and build musical awareness for children age 2-10 and families.
“The impact of music on children has and will continue to be a profound part of children’s foundation,” says NJW Executive Director, Eric Dilts. “Learning about Jazz impacts children’s’ creativity and musical development even before they learn to play an instrument. We are excited to launch this initiative to the heart of the North Nashville community.”
Jazz AM is made possible with the help of generous sponsors and funding from the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Many thanks to our lead sponsor, Zander Insurance.
