As many of you will know, NYJO has been increasingly developing partnerships throughout the country. As part of this, we’ve been talking to the good folks at Falmouth University who run the Falmouth Yamaha Jazz Summer School. This offers a fantastic opportunity to learn from top jazz musicians, play and share with like-minded people, and work in a state-of-the-art music facility in Cornwall. It runs this year from 18-23 August and is open for all instrumentalists and singers . For further information see www.falmouth.ac.uk/jazzsummerschool
NYJO London’s own Music Director, saxophonist Phil Meadows, will be an assistant tutor on the course, which would be well-suited to any NYJO Academy member or their friends.
Several bursaries are available for those aged 14-18 who are interested in a career as a professional musician. Further information is on the website or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Check it out!
