All Star Flyer

About:

The Kansas City Youth Jazz Orchestra program was started by Jim and Mary Mair, founders of the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra and Kansas City Jazz Alliance and producers of The Kansas City Jazz Summit and Basically Basie competition.

We will be forming two 14 piece all star ensembles utilizing standard jazz band instrumentation selected from the hardest working and most dedicated High School and Middle School musicians in the region. These groups will be treated much like a "club" or "travel" sports team. The personal and group expectations will be high.

You will be qualified for this group if you have a recommendation from your private teacher and or band director. Aspiring All District and All State musicians are encouraged. Reading, improvisation and woodwind doubling are also an asset.  We are interested in reliable young people who can fully commit to the program for the five rehearsal/concert increments and have a great work ethic and attitude.

Rehearsals will be intense and fast paced but also enjoyable. We are excited to collaborate with Bob Woeppel and his terrific team at REW Music in Lenexa!

Online Private Lessons

Learn About Private Lessons

Social distancing is no reason to disrupt music education! We need music now more than ever! Until further notice, all private lessons will be instructed remotely through an online platform. We will return to in-person lessons as soon as we are safely able to do so. With this in mind, lessons will be scheduled such that you may keep your same lesson day & time when we return to instruction at both REW Music locations. We offer either 30 minute or 60 minute weekly lessons.
