Event description

Description

Come and work with some of the UK's finest jazz musicians as part of our new Lancashire NYJO Regional Academy.

This term, NYJO have appointed the fantastic Joe Browne (encoremusicians.com/Joe-Browne) to work on a long term basis as leader of the Lancashire Academy and he will be supported by NYJO Ambassadors and Lancashire Music Hub tutors.

The sessions will mainly focus on small band and improvisation skills, complementing the excellent county jazz orchestra opportunities we have in the county.

This term's workshops are taking place on:

Sunday 5th May, 10am - 4pm

Sunday 16th June, 10am - 4pm

You only need to sign up once to attend both workshops but please leave a note on your booking if you can only attend one of the dates.

The Lancashire NYJO Academy aims to cater for both intermediate and more advanced musicians and we welcome any instrument (including voice). You will need to be aged 18 or under and, to get the most out of this opportunity, we would recommend you are a minimum of grade 3/4 standard on your instrument (this is only a guide and recognise that many musicians don't take formal exams).

As a new project, these initial sessions are offered FREE of charge.

This is part of NYJO's aim to ‘level the playing field for jazz education’ so that young musicians from across the UK have equal opportunities to develop their talents. There is also a NYJO Academy starting in Cumbria as well as existing academies in Wiltshire, Darlington and London.

If you would like any further information, please email cath.sewell@lancashire.gov.uk.
