Workshops with Jazz Poetry Improv Ensemble

We conduct jazz poetry workshops for school/university students and adults. It's a terrific confidence building exercise that introduces students to the art of performance poetry, encourages them to take initiative and helps overcome the fear of public speaking while exploring their own creative side.

How it Works

1. Teachers tell students a few weeks in advance to write their own poems in any language or choose a poem by their favorite poet. 

2. On the day of the workshop, Jazz Poetry Improv Ensemble gives a 40 min performance. 

3. After the performance, we get feedback from students and explain how the Ensemble functions together and how the students can perform with us. This lasts about 20 min, usually.

4. Following the feedback, we proceed to perform with the students. Students explain to musicians what their poems are about and how they want to perform. The musicians improvise accordingly.

5. Everybody loves it.
