JAZZ SCHOOL 2017

VENUE: BYMT Room 4
DATE: Thursday 21 September 2017
TIME: 18:00 - 21:00


Jazz School will tackle jazz training from an innovative angle that enables all musicians to develop their jazz composition and improvisation skills through engaging in group musical activity.

The sessions take place at BYMT on alternative Thursday evenings, and dates are available online at bymt.co.uk/events. There will be a fee of £60 for adults, and a discounted price for under-18s. This covers the five sessions.

This course takes a practical, performance based approach to learning in a supportive, inclusive and nurturing way. Through the playing and study of jazz repertoire the course will cover the essential requirements for composition and improvisation, including ear training, arrangements, transcription, rhythmic skills, developing harmonic understanding and knowledge, and building a jazz vocabulary.

It is open for entry to participants of any age, whether or not they are a BYMT student, on any instrument, minimum Grade 3 standard.

Numbers are limited to ensure that everyone gets the opportunity to play in every session. Enrolment is by application with this form:
