An early introduction to jazz can set the stage for a lifetime of learning and fun! Jazz music has valuable lessons for children of all ages. It shows the joy of creativity, emphasizes the importance of cooperation, and embodies a democratic ideal: all voices are equally important.

The gift of music appreciation can enrich a child's development in many ways, including strengthening learning and social skills. The only drawback is that you can't take your kids to a jazz bar or nightclub to hear it! Stanford Jazz Workshop founder Jim Nadel and a host of the Bay Area's finest musicians have the perfect solution: an entertaining, informative introduction to jazz presented in a kid-friendly environment (and at a family-friendly price!).

Nadel, whom saxophone legend Jimmy Heath calls "the number one advocate for [jazz] music out West - an educational giant," has decades of experience at the forefront of jazz education and first-hand knowledge about the music's history and some of its most colorful characters. In this engaging and interactive program, Nadel and friends will demonstrate musical styles, concepts, and instruments from the world of jazz. Come for one or both sets, and take advantage of this great opportunity to get your kids hip - they'll thank you for it later!

Supported in part by Alice Lee & Gregory Melchor.
