Real venues, Real audiences, Authentic experiences

Would you like your students to experience more than just play at a shopping mall and a primary school?

We can organise your next international or domestic band tour. JWA tours focus on quality educational experiences and good performance opportunities as the top priority, with plenty of sightseeing and cultural activities for the perfect balance. We’ve helped bands to play at jazz festivals (real ones with the public watching), jazz clubs, concert halls, major public venues, universities. Prestigious performances can be a great centerpiece to help you sell a tour to parents, stakeholders and potential sponsors. Contact us now for more information.

We offer services tailored to the needs of each group. Of course, if a shopping mall or a primary school performance is all you want, we can set that up for you too. Here are some of the things we can do for you:


  • Arrange performances
  • Arrange workshops and masterclasses
