Jazz department

BYMT believes passionately in offering training and performance opportunities in all genres of music and we are delighted to be in a position to include jazz.

Playing and studying jazz repertoire enables you to explore and develop essential musical skills including:

  • instant composition
  • improvisation
  • ear training
  • rhythmic skills
  • harmonic understanding and knowledge
  • arrangements and transcriptions
  • building a jazz vocabulary
  • performance opportunities

The work of the Jazz Department evolves around the exploration of our students’ limitless creativity, providing them with highly qualified professional tuition, as well as supervision of the work of BYMT jazz ensembles and bands.
