Girls Jazz

Resuming face-to-face classes in Term 3, commencing 30th July 2020.

Led by the versatile and much sought-after teacher Jess Green, the Open School of Music's Girls Jazz program offers young women the opportunity to learn how to perform in a small ensemble, and develop their instrumental skills with individual lessons.

Participants in our junior and senior ensembles meet on a Thursday afternoon from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM during term time for a 2 hour ensemble rehearsal.  Senior ensemble members receive an additional 45 minutes per week in one-on-one instrumental tutoring, and junior members receive 30 minutes per week.  These classes will run for 14 weeks each semester.  

New in 2020, our junior ensemble will be led by Jess Green, while the senior jazz ensemble will be led by local jazz musician and ANU School of Music masters student, Elle Osborne.

We are now accepting applications for our 2021 program.  If you are interested in applying for our program in 2021, please complete the webform here.  We encourage applications from both trans and cis gendered young women.

Semester fee for Girls Jazz is $135.00.  Fees can be paid through the ANU's OneStop Secure Payment Portal:
