Young Women’s Jazz Workshops

When

Saturdays, 10pm to 11pm Saturday 17 July to Saturday 11 September

Jazz is about communication, expression, and speaking freely through your instrument. The widespread genre is one that’s evolved more than most because change is supported rather than ridiculed. Maybe you’ll be the one to lead the next great change.

Are you a young female-identifying, or LGBTQIA+ instrumentalist? Do you want to bop like Terri Lyne Carrington, groove like Nubya Garcia, or sing like Esperanza Spalding – then this course is for you.

Developed in partnership with Dr. Sandy Evans OAM in 2002, the Young Women’s Jazz Workshops have played a transformative role for countless musicians aged 12 and up around Australia. Our eight-week program accommodates players of all skill levels, from beginner to advanced, regardless of their prior knowledge of jazz, and has been crafted to inspire young instrumentalists to play jazz and pursue a future in music.

Develop the skills and confidence of young women in jazz and improvised instrumental music.

Broaden knowledge of jazz and improvised music.

Increase awareness of career options in jazz and related areas.

Encourage students to understand audition processes and apply for tertiary jazz courses.

Nurture and foster friendships, ensembles, and support networks among female jazz musicians.

Audition Day: Saturday 19 June

Your audition allocates you into the appropriate ensemble for your age and skill level. If you can’t attend on this day, please email marketing@sima.org.au
