Synopsis

When parents bring their kids to musical school they have no idea if the music will fascinate their children, open new magic world. And they also don't know if young musician will be assiduous and strong enough to make music. This is a question of a teacher's great patience and wish to involve child in a process of play and creativity.

Usually, when we mention musical school, we mean the school, where children are taught to perform classical music. There are only few schools where children play jazz. But there are two jazz ensembles in this school. We watch those children on the festival "Jazz Parnas". Children have different ages and characters, but they all are gathered by love to jazz music. They have their own conception of this non-child's music that makes jazz composition to sound fresh and ingenuous. Long and hard rehearsals are behind successful concerts.
