In the schools with students and teachers

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. They are also encouraged to become active participants in the process of music-making themselves through participation in school band, orchestra, and choir programs.

These workshop materials are presented here to enable you to prepare your class for the songs that will be sung in the workshops and assembly.  It is recommended, but not required.
