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. 


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