About the lessons

There are teachers of most common instruments at the Jazz Workshop. Some also offer jazz improvisation as a stand-alone subject. All the Jazz Workshop teachers are experienced educators. All ages and levels are welcome. Most of the teachers offer both jazz and classical lessons. Private music lessons are mostly paid in advance to the end of each school term though casual lessons are also available. Most lessons are on weekday afternoons & evenings, or all day Saturday. For all but beginner students we recommend at least 45 minutes weekly. All teachers running their studios at JWA have current Working With Children certification. We work closely with our tenant teachers to ensure high teaching standards and work towards the best outcomes for our students. The lessons are all at our studio in St Leonards. The teachers don’t do house calls.

Private music lessons are paid in advance, usually for a school term or blocks of ten. Teachers need 24 hours notice to reschedule a lesson, if rescheduling is available. We will only reschedule once per term. If your account remains unpaid by the second week of term lessons will be suspended and we may make your lesson time available to someone else.

Before you start music lessons at the Jazz Workshop, please take a moment to read our TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Booking for lessons indicates you have understood and accepted all the relelvant terms and conditions.
