Girls Jazz



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 Jazz ensemble.

The program runs both a junior and senior ensemble, led by Jess Green and Elle Osborne respectively.

Ensemble rehearsals run weekly between 4:30 - 6:30 pm on Thursday afternoons, for 14 weeks each semester.

Term dates can be found on our Student Resources Page.




Applicants must be between the ages of 12 - 18, and have been playing their instrument for a minimum of one year.

We encourage applications from both trans and cis gendered young women.
