Key of She Jazz Events
NEXT EVENT: Pending!
ABOUT OUR EVENTS: Key of She Jazz is dedicated to hosting events throughout the year to provide space for girls and nonbinary students in jazz. Our goal with events is to keep them accessible for students! Every event is open to students of all genders, educators, professional musicians, parents of jazz students, music lovers, and really anyone that supports our mission.
We've been so fortunate to have such an incredible lineup of speakers, panelists, presenters, performers, and others alike at our events. Click below to view our Key of She Hall of Fame which features our past speakers!

2020 Fall Virtual Week
November 30- December 4, 2020
By popular demand, a second virtual event was hosted in the fall of 2020. This online experienced allowed for our audience to connect with each other again later that year from all over the world.
Masterclass led by drummer, Allison Miller had our participants up out of their chairs dancing and feeling the beat on Zoom.
2020 Summer Virtual Week
August 3-7, 2020
