Youth Jazz Canada
Historically, the Canadian music scene has been a vibrant and viable industry supporting local, national and international artists in both the classical and commercial fields of music. While opportunities have long existed for the classical music student to further their skills through regional and national training programs, competitions and performance opportunities, few such opportunities exist for students in the commercial/jazz field. Youth Jazz Canada programs provide talented Canadian youth interested in jazz performance with the opportunity to develop their talent, network with peers and professionals at the highest performance level and acquire a greater awareness of the music industry without leaving the country. Exceptionally talented students will be able to use the training as a stepping-stone to other national and international opportunities.
