2019 Showcase
Wednesday, 25 September 2019


Devised in 2002 by SIMA and Dr San2dy Evans OAM, the Young Women’s Jazz Workshops teaches girls aged 12 and up, how to improvise and get a feel for jazz and blues.

Winner of the APRA Art Music Award for Excellence in Education, our eight-week program accommodates players of all skill levels, from beginner to advanced, regardless of their prior knowledge of jazz.

These workshops provide a fun and supportive environment for young women wanting to develop confidence improvising. They are especially helpful for those preparing to enter jazz at a tertiary level. Our graduates have gone on to win the prestigious Freedman Jazz Fellowship and perform at the Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival.
