Summer Short Course

Be inspired. Be empowered. Be creative!

NYJC Summer Short Course is an inspirational 4-day residential programme for applicants who clearly demonstrate musical talent at their audition but are not quite ready for the main course. Participants progress hugely over the 4 days and 60% of short course participants move up to the Summer School the following year.

After learning a bespoke programme of repertoire by ear in advance of the course, and guided by one of our outstanding tutors, students play in combos with musicians of a similar standard culminating in a concert to an audience of family and friends.

At least 40% of Short Course participants progress onto NYJC’s pinnacle Summer School the following year. 90% of each Summer School then goes on to study jazz or composition at conservatoire before taking the scene by storm!

Please note 

This year’s Short Course is taking place from 15th-18th August 2024 and the enrolment fee is £380 

Financial Help: We don’t want anyone to miss out because they cannot afford the fees. So NYJC offers means-tested bursaries for those needing financial help which can include covering the enrolment fee and transport costs to the course.
