Young Musicians Education Program

The Young Musicians Education Program is available to musicians ages 14 to 22 who are interested in further developing their jazz musicianship and performing with a group of their peers at the UpTown Waterloo Jazz Festival July 15th-17th, 2016.

Successful applicants will work with some of Waterloo Region’s finest jazz musicians in a series of workshops, which will focus on the various aspects of jazz improvisation and performance in an ensemble. Participants will also learn the behind the scenes skills necessary to stage a gig at a major music festival. The program ends with performances by this new ensemble onstage at the UpTown Waterloo Jazz Festival.

Participants will have the opportunity to work with jazz experts as well as other young jazz musicians from across Waterloo region.
