Classical, World, and Jazz music instructors unite to create a unique and exciting repertoire at Greenwich House Music School (GHMS)! The Greenwich House Global Groove Orchestra is an exciting creation by long-time music teacher Eve Zanni, formerly of P.S. 41, who will lead this youth orchestra to combine the highest level of classical music learning with the innovation of Rhythm First Jazz and World Music whole-body learning. 

All students 8-16 years of age are welcome, including students currently studying at GHMS, who may participate in the ensemble tuition free! Students will receive a half hour private or group lesson on their instruments, and also attend the 1 hour orchestra rehearsal on a weekly basis. The orchestra will be co-directed by Ms. Zanni, Juan Mayorga and Hisaichi Zimura, current GHMS percussion and strings faculty members, respectively. This team of teachers will create arrangements of world music and jazz compositions from the classical repertoire. 

The Global Groove Orchestra will include marimbas, vibraphones, pianos, 2 drum kits, congas, djembes, and assorted hand percussion, plus more traditional instrumentation dependent upon enrollment.
