Educational Content

JSL’s Education team has been busy working one-on-one with students via video chat, developing upcoming programs and creating content to educate us all. Online with an ongoing series, JSL’s Listener’s Guide to Jazz, snap-bio videos about St. Louis Jazz Heroes both past and present, and The Shed with Carlos Brown Jr., exploring technique and practicing for students of all ages.
