Kings Place Launches Two Jazz Music Education Programmes

Picture1 The Community Bulletin Board just received the following notice from King’s Place about two eduction programmes they will launch shortly.

We thought it would be a good idea to publicise this to the local community to ensure maximum benefit to secure an early place for anyone interested.

Dear Colleagues

Kings Place is launching two exciting jazz music education programmes with the National Youth Jazz Collective.  Places on these programmes will be advertised to the public in two weeks.  Places are limited, so early booking is essential.

The National Youth Jazz Collective (NYJC) is a new and vibrant national youth music organisation, funded by Youth Music and presided over by David Holland.  The NYJC is designed to support the creative and educational needs of the young jazz musician through regional projects and an annual National Youth Jazz Summer School.  For more info go to www.nyjc.co.uk.

The two jazz music education programmes being offered at Kings Place are:

Young Musicians Programme

The Young Musicians Programme takes place over a series of Sundays plus a four day intensive summer programme in July. It is aimed at young musicians at all levels, studying any instrument.  The programme consists of workshops with professional musicians from the National Youth Jazz Collective incorporating group, combo and sectional work.

Each Sunday workshops culminate in a concert by the NYJC professional quartet followed by a short concert by the students in combinations which is open to student’s friends and family.
