One of the Jamestown Sound's teachers, Lisa-Marie Rens organised and hosted a "Jazz morning" at the Music Conserve in Stellenbosch. Music learners from Cloetesville and Weber Gedenk Primary schools took part in the workshop. Learners got the opportunity to listen to and receive live demonstrations of Jazz instruments by music students of the conserve, after which they all took part in performing Jazz on their instruments... here's what the day looked like.
