Welcome new and returning Young Jazz All Stars to the U-JAM program for developing musicians! This Saturday afternoon program will build confidence and skills to play jazz and improvise, playing in small combos.
Under the guidance of David Flello, Ashley Wey, and Louis Rudner, and the mentorship of many great musicians in our community, we have developed a strategy of group instruction and experiential learning for the upcoming school year. Students should be between 12 and 18 with good proficiency on their instrument.
Fees are $35.00 per month or $315 for the 9-month term (bursaries are available for deserving students)
Questions? Please use the YAS contact form on this page to reach Dave F.
Now in our 15th year of creating musicians...We hope you can come out to play!
We have enjoyed a great fall with guest mentors Nick LaRiviere, Phil Dwyer, and others, along with our great coordinators Ashley Wey and Louis Rudner and special assistants, Dave Flello and Eric Hughs.
We enjoyed playing as part of the "Basie Christmas" show with the U-JAM Jazz Repertory Orchestra in December.
