REGISTRATION
Read through the combo options. Each one has a ‘namesake’. This does not mean that you will only play music by that composer, but their tunes tunes will be the main feature of the group. Learn more about the coaches on our EDUCATORS page. Choose the combo you want to be a part of. Be sure you can make the coaching dates. Combo spots are first come, first served. If you go to register for a combo and don't see your instrument listed, we're full on that instrument and you'll need to pick a different combo. Email kelly@seattlejazzed.org for assistance. 


The community that JazzED is creating spans schools and neighborhoods, bringing together people who might not otherwise meet.
