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 senior ensemble meet on a Thursday afternoon from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM during term time for a 2 hour ensemble rehearsal, and receive an additional 45 minutes per week in one-on-one instrumental tutoring. These classes will run for 14 weeks each semester.
In 2020 we are also offering a junior ensemble which will meet weekly for two hours with 8 week semesters. Junior ensemble members will also receive seven 30 minute lessons each semester, 3 to be delivered before they start the weekly ensemble classes, and 4 during the 8 week semester.
Thanks to the generous support of artsACT, fees for a single semester of study are just $135 for Senior Ensemble members, and $80 for Junior Ensemble members.
