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.
