JWA is a music school specialising in jazz education. We teach people how to play jazz and run programs focusing on musical excellence through jazz.
Located in St Leonards, JWA is very close to the station and transport. We offer private lessons with some of the biggest and best names in jazz in a superb purpose-built venue. Our qualified teaching faculty are all carefully selected as being outstanding players and commited teachers, passionate about passing on the unique joy of jazz.
A great feature of the Jazz Workshop is our program of jazz combos: small groups rehearsing weekly under the guidance of an expert tutor with regular performance opportunities. With groups for all ages and levels from 10 years and up, this is the perfect way to put your jazz playing into practice.
Our private instrumental students can sit for exams through the JWA Jazz Examination Syllabus. This is a unique student – centered program that offers a valuable recognised qualification through exams that are rigorous, serious, comprehensive and give a clear indication of a student’s playing level.
JWA also runs regular school holiday workshops as well as many one-off masterclasses.
