#1 Jazz Ambassadors

#1 Jazz Ambassadors perform and teach live jazz music in schools, concerts, municipalities, fund raising events,.... We demonstrate, and expose students to American jazz music through fun and interactive presentations in their schools. Our program is highly acclaimed. All musicians are teachers themselves. We have had great success in introducing jazz music to students of all ages, even pre-school. They love our program, and love jazz after seeing us!

This clip is from a kindergarden class in Hinsdale, MA in 2009. In performance is in the school library. We have performed for as few as a single classroom, and in groups of over 500. The group is very flexible.
