Developed by Jazz at Lincoln Center, WeBop is a jazz education program designed for children three to five years old. These 45-minute classes are structured to engage both the child and caregiver, with participation required from both. Families are invited to stomp, strut, and swing to the joyous rhythms of jazz while learning about its core concepts, instruments, and great performers.

Spring 2020 DATES

  • FREE Trial WeBop class, Saturday, March 14th at 10:00 a.m.

Each term is eight weeks, with two band weeks at Week 4 and Week 8. Students progress throughout the terms and age groups, constantly building on what they have learned.

All WeBop classes require child and adult participation. WeBop is not a drop-off toddler program.
