The audition tour has now finished and this year’s summer school is no longer open for applications.
Please register on our mailing list to make sure you hear about next year’s and other opportunities to be involved with NYJC throughout the year.
At the end of the 2017 Summer School we will be hosting a stunning public concert (see last year’s here) as part of our 10th Birthday celebrations. This will be in the prestigious Kings Place venue in London. We will shortly release full details of how to be in the audience on this site!
NYJC’s Summer School is for England’s highly talented 14-18 year old musicians. We welcome players of all styles and traditions who want to extend their improvisation and interactive skills. We aim to build confidence through playing great tunes, receiving professional guidance and performing a broad range of jazz music.
The Summer School is a residential week – this year at The Purcell School in Hertfordshire.
Attendees are placed in bands guided by twelve of the nation’s leading jazz educators (all internationally renowned performers!) – as well as jamming with amazing international guests. This year’s tutors include Issie Barratt, Dave Holland Chris Batchelor, Dominic Ashworth, Karen Sharpe, Malcolm Earle Smith, Martin Speake, Nic France, Nikki Iles, Orphy Robinson and Soweto Kinch!
