It is improvised in the moment it is made.

For 35 years SIMA has been developing opportunities for Australian audiences to experience the magic of improvised music.

Our interactive performance-workshop program Cool for School gives students an unforgettable taste of jazz in high-energy, entertaining atmosphere.

Our bespoke programs feature the crème of the Australian jazz scene and compliment the NSW secondary school syllabus.  Students gain valuable insight into composition and improvisation, ensemble work, aural skills, stagecraft, music as a vocation and the Australian music industry.

All programs are flexible and can be conducted onsite at your school, or take students off campus and into the electric live atmosphere of Sydney’s premiere jazz club, Foundry616.

Talk to us about tailoring a Cool for School to suit your needs.
