Please join us on December 9 at 2:00 pm for the University of Arkansas Community Music School Winter Jazz Showcase.  This concert presents the NWA Youth and Adult Jazz Workshops who will perform a variety of jazz classics, original compositions, and holiday classics (with a twist).  Under the direction of Chris Teal, the performance will be followed by a Q&A with the musicians, so bring your curiosity and sense of adventure!

Open to students aged 11-18, the youth jazz workshop is now in its third year while the beginning, intermediate, and advanced adult groups are in their second year. The groups learn jazz songs, style, and improvisation with a focus on learning by ear.  Open to all instruments and voices, the Community Music School jazz workshops welcome students of all ages and abilities--no audition required.  For more information visit or email director Chris Teal at
