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)

Now in our 15th year of creating musicians...We hope you can come out to play!
Our first two sessions have gone very well, with a workshop with Phil Dwyer kicking off the month. After only one rehearsal, the students took to the stage at Hermann's for last Club Night with a great result.
We are extra-pleased to announce that pianist Ashley Wey and her bassist/ husband Louis Rudner will coordinate and direct the Young All Stars this year. Both are fabulously gifted musicians and will be great mentors for our groups.
U-JAM director Dave Flello is leading a new initiative to organize youth jam sessions on a bi-weekly basis. We are especially greatful that the folks at Hermann's (Arts on View Society) share our passion for creating the next generation of musicians and have agreed to partner with us. Our first session will be Wednesday, Oct. 30th starting at 5:00 - everyone welcome!
