Posted: Wed, 13 Jan 2016 13:00

The National Youth Jazz Collective are delighted to announce that our National Youth Jazz Summer School 2016 will be held at Uppingham School, Rutland from 7-14th August.

This week-long Summer School will bring together England's most gifted and talented young jazz musicians aged 14-18. During the week you'll be working with twelve of the nation's leading jazz educators – all of whom are internationally renowned performers.

Tutors include NYJC's Founding Artistic Director Issie Barratt, Dominic Ashworth, Christine Jensen, Laura Jurd, Mark Lockheart, Gareth Lockrane, Mark Mondesir, Liam Noble, Jeremy Price and Percy Pursglove.

The focus of the course is to develop your improvisation and interactive skills, build confidence, provide professional guidance, performance experience and meet likeminded and talented musicians within the context of small group improvisation.

Summer School participants will be asked to pay a course fee of £400. NYJC can offer means tested bursaries for those who need financial help. For more information about course fees and bursaries click HERE.
