The RMF “Project Penske” Get Jazzed Jams are:
  • An opportunity for students to meet and play jazz with professional musicians
  • A way to learn more about jazz performance in a fun, supportive environment
  • A great way to meet musicians from other schools
  • A real-time way to learn these skills – improvisation, musical styles, performing as a unit, reading chord changes, keeping your place in a song, listening to each other, and to jazz!
  • A chance to do all this at your own school!
  • FREE!!  And open to the public!
