Kinderjazz is a 12 piece fully acoustic swing orchestra. They opened MANLY JAZZ FESTIVAL back in 1998 and since then have performed at the Sydney Opera House, Daring Harbour, the TEDDY BEAR’S PICNIC at Parramatta Stadium to more than 10,000 families, Carols in the Domain 2000 on Channel 7, Stadium Australia and many major venues around Australia.
KINDERJAZZ is gaining ever increasing popularity with families who will travel from other states and countries just to see them in action!
KINDERJAZZ is bringing family entertainment back just when pubs have done away with live music and opted for loud video machines and gambling. Like all good music it spans all generations. Music is our universal language and should not be eroded by technology - it needs no explanation and can only thrive on human involvement. Children are deeply complicated and sensitive people. They should not have to meet the world in three minute sound bites. Nor should they remain passive listeners but should become actively involved.
Parents love it because it is jazz and its educational in a fun way, grandparents love it because it takes them back , children love the rhythms and enjoy the instruments. We are passionately committed to bringing the magical world of music and its instruments to children of all ages.
Jazz is such a creative medium and remains dynamically educational for children. The instinct to move as a response to sound begins in the womb. Our musicians are some of the best in Australia - chosen because of their high quality as well as their ability to relate to children.
