Girl Plays Jazz Project

IMG_8850

The Girl Plays Jazz Project (established in December 2017) is dedicated to the support and promotion of girls and young women in jazz.

Our Project has three strands. We run an introduction to jazz improvisation workshop programme Рintroducing girls and young women to jazz, funk, blues and world music improvisation, and developing them as jazz musicians. We organise jazz masterclasses where top level professionals from the London jazz scene come in to teach the girls. We also arrange performance and development opportunities for the girls in well known London venues.  Please see our workshops page for full details of all our workshops and how to register.

***WE ARE FUNDRAISING FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS OF OUR PROJECT FROM SEPTEMBER 2020.  CONTRIBUTE HERE:

We had an amazing time collaborating with the Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation with a workshop and performance at the club on Sunday 8th March 2020 as part of International Women’s Day supporting the Headline act Zara McFarlane.
