Seattle JazzED was founded in 2010 to ensure every young person who comes through their doors gets an excellent music education. Grades 4-12 are welcomed at all levels, to audition for a jazz band ensemble, take a one-day workshop, or spend a week in summer honing skills. Kids ages 8 months to 5 years can move and groove at WeBop, our early-childhood class for babies and toddlers.
