Autumn Jazz School

*NEW* Autumn Jazz School


28th-30th October

Are you aged between 14 - 19, do you have a love of Jazz? Perhaps you have just discovered this music and are keen to know more about how you can begin playing Jazz? Do you want to meet like-minded musicians in and around Hampshire and have some fun playing, whilst improving your knowledge of this vibrant music and repertoire? Perhaps you have already spent some time playing Jazz and are keen to explore how you can begin composing your own music or how different styles of jazz might inform your approach to composition?

If you have answered "yes" to any of these questions it is likely that the Autumn Jazz School is for you. The Autumn Jazz School is a three day event taking place within Wessex Arts Centre based at Alton College, Hampshire. It runs from the 28th -30th October. We are offering two days of workshops (28th and 29th October) aimed at 14-16 year olds focusing on playing some essential jazz repertoire with Jazz specialist Phillip Singleton. Also on offer is one day of workshops (on 30th October) aimed at 16-19 year olds featuring masterclasses in composition, composing and accompaniment from recently graduated Jazz specialist and composer Laura Jurd and talented singer/songwriter Fini Bearman. The workshops are provided free of charge thanks to the support of Wessex Arts, the Hampshire Music Service and the Alton College Music Department.

If you are interested in these workshops please contact for more information regarding timings and how to sign up for these workshops. Please do pass information regarding these workshop sessions to anybody who you think may be interested.
