BYMT wins the prestigious Will Michael award for Jazz education

JAZZ EDUCATION AWARDS 

 

TRINITY LABAN CONSERVATOIRE hosted this year’s Will Michael Jazz Education Awards on 22 November. Retiring Awards Panel chair, Ivor Widdison paid tribute to outstanding commitments to jazz education demonstrated by the following music education hubs and music services all of whom were awarded Diplomas

Bromley

Cumbria

Devon

Doncaster

Gloucestershire

Oxfordshire 

Sheffield

The occasion was made doubly special by a scintillating performance by the Trinity Laban Contemporary Jazz Ensemble under Mark Lockheart of compositions by UK composers. 

Conditions: 

The Awards, which are supported by the Musicians’ Company, matter because they do two things. They are the only means of according national recognition to those Hubs, Music Services and Education Authorities which demonstrate an outstanding commitment to jazz education.  And secondly, they acknowledge the work of those field practitioners who are actually delivering jazz education and in many cases helping to combat the widespread jazz phobia among classroom music teachers and instrumental tutors.

The Awards Panel comprises Andrea Vicari, Dr Catherine Tackley, Bill Martin, Richard Michael and Ivor Widdison..
