Jazz in Groningen

For all ages and levels

Groningen has one of the Netherlands' largest jazz scenes. There are few music schools with so many jazz activities as VRIJDAG. Are you a jazz lover and do you want to play together, improvise, jam and follow masterclasses? It's all possible with us! Every Monday evening, our house of amateur art is completely devoted to jazz with the Jazz Train: a succession of jazz bands, jazz combos and open jazz sessions for all ages and every level. A unique concept in the North!

In addition, there are many bands, ensembles, choirs and orchestras within VRIJDAG that you can participate in. And for existing jazz combos we offer coaching by appointment. Making music together with others is not only fun, but also educational. You are challenged to listen carefully to each other and to dare to solo. Moreover, we regularly play at festivals, such as Swingin' Groningen and Noorderzon, and on our own stages. We also visit jazz concerts together at a reduced rate.

Wondering if a jazz course is something for you? The first lesson is without obligation. You can cancel free of charge within three days of your first lesson. This does not apply to short courses (≤8 lessons).
