Jazz Band Program



The Jazz Band program ran at the Ottawa Folklore Centre from 2008 to its closure in 2015.

It has since found a new home at Alcorn Studios.

The Jazz Band program is an opportunity for musicians to learn to play jazz in a fun and non-competitive environment. The focus is on improvisation and small group interaction playing standard jazz repertoire. There are several ensembles, geared towards different skill levels with a focus on a welcoming and fun environment.

Admission is by friendly audition, simply in order to evaluate the student’s current playing level and long term goals and to best match them with an ensemble.

The Jazz Band performed monthly at Alphasoul Cafe for well over a year, and played monthly at Stella Luna Gelato Cafe until summer of 2015.

Please contact me directly or via Alcorn Studios for general information.
