If you think you’d enjoy our Summer School—we want to meet you!
Every year we take to the road and hear hundreds of players. All kinds of instruments from all kinds of backgrounds. Not just saxophones and double basses (though we love them!) – we’re ready for any instrument… sitars, violins, bassoons, and on and on. And singers too of course.
We also like jazz with many flavours; from rock and rap to classical, World Music fusion and funk. Jazz is in the spirit of the music. The way you make it.
And let’s be clear – you don’t need to have passed any grades on your instrument. We want to hear if it’s your thing.
It costs nothing to come and our top Artistic Director Issie Barratt is very encouraging! So you’ve got nothing to lose and it will be a great experience!
But if you’re ready to go – book your audition now!

NYJC Audition Tour 2020 locations and dates (click on your chosen date and city to register for your audition!):
Due to low uptake in Cumbria and Cornwall in recent years we are paying travel fees for students from those counties to get to their nearest venue. Don’t let that stop you from applying!!
Students auditioning with non-Western instruments (eg Tabla, Sitar) will have some different elements in their auditions.
