To promote jazz youngsters, both as the audience of tomorrow and as artists on stage, „jazz and improvisation for kids“ has played a special role at jazzahead! for a few years now. The event takes place on jazzahead!‘s Thursday, sometimes as a round table, a symposium, a education program or a workshop. In 2019 we presented three showcases especially for children.
