About Jim Nadel and the Zookeepers

“Jim and some of the Bay Area’s best musicians will open your child’s eyes to the popular musical form. Parents: You’re sure to learn something new, too!” —MommyNearest

You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen hundreds of kids dancing, clapping, and smiling as they learn how much fun jazz can be! Each instrument gets its moment in the spotlight to engage your child, which often inspires kids to want to learn to play — so don’t be surprised when you’re asked if you can take home a bass saxophone (don’t worry, it’s already spoken for)! At Early Bird Jazz for Kids, jazz becomes an adventure in which every child is a participant, and every child is in on the comic dialog between the instruments. And there will be songs that kids love to sing along with, too. In this beloved annual event, SJW founder Jim Nadel shares his entertaining and informative introduction to jazz with you and your family, presented in a kid-friendly environment, at a parent-friendly price.
