ABOUT PJO virtual-oso

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and in an effort to continue the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra Educational Program's 15th summer of jazz education for student musicians entering grades 6 through 12, our traditional PJO Jazz Week programs have been converted to an online/virtual program for students that do not wish to attend our traditional PJO Jazz Week Sessions in-person this year.. 

The PJO Staff has developed a curriculum for this summer that will all students to develop skills and collaborate with teachers and fellow students virtually.  The curriculum has expanded focus on individual skill building, practice/rehearsal techniques, ear training, theory/improvisation, and music technology. 

The PJO Virual-Oso Session is 1 week long with an approximate 3.5 to 4.5 hours of instruction each day via ZOOM.  In addition to the ZOOM sessions, students will have to finish assignments and work/practice on their own each day in able to contribute to the final "Virtual Concert". 

Each student will receive a personal schedule for each week of their session.  Their schedule will help them maximize their individual skills and help them prepare and record their repertoire for final virtual performances at the end of the session.

We are excited for the opportunities that this new online format can provide for students and look forward to you joining us this summer! 

Tuition for PJO Virtual-Oso is only $500 for the session.
