After School Programming
Jazz is more than music. Jazz is a way of thinking about your environment and how you interact with it. During each performance jazz musicians collaborate, take risks, problem solve, establish leadership, and support one another with little or no verbal communication. Building upon our experience working with thousands of students each year and presenting world class artists MCG Jazz now offers after school programming for high school students.
