BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 11!

Jazz Education Programs

All classes are taught by the Outpost team comprising saxophonist, Kanoa Kaluhiwa; percussionist/trombonist, César Bauvallet; and pianist, Jim Ahrend. Outpost programs aim to build positive attitudes, trust, teamwork, cooperation, confidence, compassion, and a sense of humor—everything you could ever want from music. Both Youth and Adults will perform a recital for family and friends at the end of their second session. It is expected that students will have their own instruments to bring to class. Outpost will provide a piano, a drumset, and guitar & bass amplifiers.

TO ENROLL FOR CLASSES:
Ages: Minimum age 10 up to (and including) High School Senior. Class limit: 12 (minimum of 7 is required). We ask that students (youth & adult) show up a few minutes early on the first day of the class they would like to attend. That said, in order to make this the best experience for all participants, we may have to assign students to a different class based on their age, skill level and/or schedules. Call us at 268-0044 for more information.
