Kids music with universal appeal.
Kids love it, parents choose it and educators use it.
Will Stroet of Will's Jams is a JUNO-nominated musician, nationally recognized educator and former CBC Kids TV star. His high-energy rock-pop music in English and French is full of witty wordplay and sing-along choruses, inspiring kids to be active, creative, caring and community-minded.
Will discovered his talent for writing kids music while completing his bachelor or Education at UBC. After releasing his first album in 2005 and performing 100 shows locally, Will knew he had found his calling. In 2009, he left teaching to pursue music full time and has never looked back. To date, Will has performed 2000+ shows at festivals, theatres and schools across Canada and China.
Most recently, he premiered his kids' symphony orchestra show with the WSO and with the VSO’s TheConcertHall.ca. Will’s also created a new online educational platform, Wordplay with Will | Chanter avec Will, which teaches kids English and French through his music and arts-integrated activities. This platform is being piloted with several school districts in B.C. to enhance French classroom instruction.
Will’s 10 albums in English and French have garnered national acclaim, including a 2017 JUNO nomination, 7 nominations from the Western Canadian Music Awards, 3 from the Canadian Folk Music Awards and 2 from the SiriusXM Indies. In 2015, UBC’s Faculty of Education honoured Will in their top 100 Alumni awards.
