It's a Wrap

AJW Season 28, Takin' Off! With Herbie Hancock, wrapped up in May 2022 with new Music Director Shawn Ellison at the helm!

What's New


The AJW’s mission is to perform for and with public school students in order to encourage their participation in band, orchestra, and choir programs; to uphold and promote the American jazz tradition; and to enhance quality of life for all ages through live performances employing area musicians and collaborations with school ensembles and nonprofit organizations in central Texas.


One of the most exciting moments of the Austin Jazz Workshop project occurs when the musician enters the music classroom. In this more intimate setting, children have an opportunity to ask questions and witness firsthand the joy and dedication a professional brings to jazz performance. Children are encouraged to become active participants in the process of music-making themselves through school band, orchestra, and choir programs available in middle school.
