KidsJam workshops this season are virtual 25-minute interactive sessions for children ages 5-12 to experience musical performances, get involved through creative activities and movement, and learn about the people, cultures, and sounds behind the music.
Each program will feature a 10 minute CREATE instructional video for you to create an instrument to use during the workshop (not required for participation in the interactive program). Online CREATE videos will be posted one week before the workshop premiere. All videos are accessible any time after their premier date at schubert.org/kidsjam
