Girls Do Jazz is a series of online workshops presented by the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and run weekly over six Sundays in Semester 2, 2020.

As you have recently enquired about our Music program, we wanted to let you know about a series of workshops you or someone you know may be interested in. These workshops are designed for female and non-binary vocalists and instrumentalists (secondary school age and young adults) all around Australia who are interested in gaining insight and experience in jazz and improvised music.

The workshops will be run by Andrea Keller, Lecturer in Jazz & Improvisation. Andrea is a pianist and composer, dedicated to the performance and creation of contemporary jazz and improvised music. She has had extensive experience teaching, performing, recording and touring, and has been significantly lauded with three ARIA awards and seven Australian Jazz 'Bell' awards.

Current Jazz & Improvisation students will assist Andrea to work with you to engage in jazz and improvisation studies covering music’s ranging from free improvisation, to tunes from the American songbook and those by contemporary Australian jazz musicians. You do not have to have any experience in playing jazz as this will be an exciting introduction to this intriguing, creative music style!
