Event Description

The gift of music appreciation can enrich a child’s development in many ways, including strengthening learning and social skills. The trouble is that you can’t take your kids to a nightclub to hear jazz! 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. After the show you and your family are welcome to stop by Jim Nadel’s Instrument Petting Zoo, where your kids can explore all the instruments they heard onstage!
