“NYJC has established itself as the primary means through which young, like-minded jazz players can meet to play and learn together. Their summer school and feeder regional programmes are an invaluable opportunity to experience the highest level of jazz education while forging significant and sometimes life-long musical peer partnerships.”
Nick Smart – Head of Jazz at the Royal Academy of Music
ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND Recognised NYJC in 2015 as a centre of excellence in music and awarded us their top-ranking status of “National Portfolio Organisation” (NPO) along with annual core funding of £124,000.
The key to NYJC’s success in encouraging and training Britain’s future Jazz stars is our unrivalled roster of 70 world class tutors including 46 conservatoire professors and 2 Heads of Jazz at the Royal Academy and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
“NYJC got me into Jazz. I probably wouldn’t be anywhere near what I’m doing today without NYJC… It’s the best tuition you can get”
Alexandra Ridout – 2016 BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year
