ABOUT JAMMIN’ JAZZ KIDS

Building on the success of Jazz Goes to School which has served more than 18,000 students in Eagle County, Vail Jazz offers an even greater hands-on musical experience – Jammin’ Jazz Kids – presented during the month of July in conjunction with the Jazz @ The Market series on Sundays in Vail Village.

An important part of the mission of Vail Jazz is to perpetuate jazz (both its appreciation and its performance) by teaching the fundamentals of jazz to the next generation of jazz players and listeners. Jammin’ Jazz Kids offers an engaging and fun learning experience for youngsters 4 to 12 years old—an interactive jazz experience providing a hands-on opportunity to learn the fundamentals of jazz. During the program, kids will play a variety of percussion instruments—maracas, bongos, congas, tambourines, and Orff instruments. And they will listen to and join with jazz musicians in playing music and learning the art of improvisation.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Jammin’ Jazz Kids will take place at 11:00am at the Jazz Tent at Solaris on Sundays July 2nd-23rd.

To participate, please arrive by 10:45am to register your child. Parents are encouraged to watch and participate in these events, which will last approximately 45 minutes.
