JazzED is incredibly valuable to your child’s education and personal growth. Plus it is so much fun for them and the whole family!

Are you brand new to music? Have you dabbled in church music, piano lessons, or drumming?  Do you love to sing? In a Jazz Prep Ensemble you will learn how to play an instrument (or sing!), perform, read music and set yourself up for a life of musical success.
