What do I need to bring?
Just you and your instrument, whether that be a saxophone, violin, bassoon, or recorder!! Jazz isn't limited to "jazz instruments"…there's no such thing! And don't forget, your voice is an instrument too! If you play electric guitar, bass or keyboards, please bring your own practice amp.
How much does it cost?
Nothing! Not a penny! But you will need to bring drinks and a packed lunch. Students in year 11 and over will be allowed out at lunch providing they sign out with a member of staff.
