Girl Plays Jazz Project

GP-Jazz-170318-04

The Girl Plays Jazz Project is dedicated to the support and promotion of girls and young women in jazz.

Since December 2017 we have run a workshop programme – introducing girls and young women to jazz, funk, blues and world music improvisation, and developing them as jazz musicians.

Forthcoming workshops:

Our next introduction to jazz improvisation workshop will take place on Sunday 10th February 2019 at St Stephen’s Church, Canonbury.

And on 16th March 2019 we are running a samba workshop led by the Girl Plays Jazz Project house band drummer Cyro Zuzi – fantastic for the girls’ rhythmic development, and a lot of fun.

In May 2019 Andy Ruiz Palma and La Bouche Manouche will lead a gypsy jazz workshop – suitable for all instruments but especially good for strings and clarinets.

And we are delighted to be collaborating with the Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation on a joint project for 2019 – please watch this space.

Have a listen to what our beginners achieve during a workshop with the support of our house band:
