Join a jazz combo (small groups of around 3-6 students) under the guidance of the acclaimed VSO School Jazz faculty. Participants are grouped by level, age and interest and can choose to focus on jazz standards or a particular genre. Combos are given free practice time in addition to coaching sessions.
If you are interested in joining a jazz combo at the VSO School of Music, we encourage you to click the Sign Up button and fill out the online form. We will be in contact with you in late July to collect your availability, and we will do our best to create a schedule that works for you.
If you have participated in jazz combos this past year, and would like to continue with the same musicians and coach, please discuss this with your ensemble and email the Programs Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will be happy to arrange coachings for you and your ensemble.
If you are interested in auditioning for the honour youth jazz combo, please carefully read the audition guidelines and include the video audition link on the last section of the Sign Up form.
