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
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!
