The Unity Performing Arts Jazz Workshop is a class that focuses on small group jazz works for students age 14-18. These students will focus on the primary elements of jazz combo playing: improvisation, memorization, listening, and team building skills.

This will be done through weekly sessions with coaching by Director Simon Jones, in addition to monthly attendances of Unity hosted "Jazz Jam" events designed for students to learn live performance skills and band etiquette.

By the end of the program, students will be able to identify basic song and chord structures, be able to play and solo over ten songs, learn basic song arranging methods, learn about recording practices and be able to form and lead a small group as a band leader.
