At the end of the 1980s, a group of jazz musicians created the Small Academy of Jazz. In Silesia, this important idea was promoted by Jose Torres, a well-known percussionist, and Agencja Artystyczna Nona, who later entrusted this event series to the art agency Globe Records.
This cycle of music events is designed for primary schools. During the meetings, children have the opportunity to get acquainted with such music genres as jazz, blues, folk, soul, and gospel, which are the foundation of popular music and hence an indispensible element of music education for every young listener. The events are hosted by professional musicians and artists connected with the Polish (and foreign) music scene. In a straightforward way, well adjusted to the young listener’s perception skills, participants of the Small Academy of Jazz are presented with information which is a valuable supplement to school knowledge. The events are addressed to preschool children and to learners of primary school grades 1-4.
