Global Jams and Jazz. Easy Process. Dynamic. Fun.

Do you believe what we believe? Even some aspects of it?

PlayTheGroove is founded in these core principles: Youth learn differently today and education needs to match their needs. We believe that dynamic, flexible, and culturally aware music education can be the gateway to build 21st century skills for successful 21st century lives.

We Can Help Energize Your High-School Jazz/Pep/Horn Band

Everyone is on equal playing ground – engagement re-envisioned.

We’ve greatly enhanced the “lead chart” concept with expanded rhythm section options/parts.

Reduces Student Dropouts

More captivating, playing and engaging than counting 37 bars of rests.

Engage youth in performance ensembles with music and music education methods that are relevant and accessible to them.

Students Enjoy Practice

It’s not much fun practicing the 3rd trumpet part. We have star parts for all!

Everyone can play all the time with parts at varying skill levels, be challenged on an individual basis, and try new instruments and parts and include the master recording to learn from and play-along with.

Music Has Cultural Substance

We hand-picked relevant music that is current and reflects society and classrooms.

There’s a lot to learn; music is a gateway.

We can help you energize your secondary jazz/pep/horn band

PlayTheGroove is a flexible and supplemental unit-based approach that re-envisions world jazz education, with youth-cool music, by integrating sight-reading, playing by ear, and creative expression from day one.

PlayTheGroove’s vision is to be the premier source of current jazz and world jams.

Through the infusion of contemporary styles, we craft high quality, flexible sheet music, resources, pedagogy and resources aimed at aspiring musicians and teachers. We consistently strive to move learning experiences into the 21st century through goal-driven innovation and technology.
