This is a great opportunity for all young jazz musicians aged 8 - 18 and of any level of experience to work with expert jazz educators who are also active members of the international jazz scene. Participants work in small ensembles each made up of young musicians of a similar standard.
The National Youth Jazz Collective’s Young Musicians Programme focuses on small group improvisation in streamed groups designed to support all levels of ability (whatever the instrument). The programme consisting of workshops led by the Collective’s Founder and Artistic Director, Issie Barratt, with key tutors Percy Pursglove and Mick Foster, supported by the Collective’s team of young ambassadors. Each Sunday workshop ends with an informal concert given to the students’ family and friends, comprising a short set performed by the NYJC professionals and ambassadors followed by a performance given by the young musicians of the music learnt that day.
This is a great opportunity for all young jazz musicians wishing to work with expert jazz educators who are also active members of the international jazz scene - working in bespoke ensembles each made up of young musicians of a similar standard. We are happy for participants to treat their first session as a “try out” but expect you to commit to the remaining dates.
