The Gollum 1 Ensemble will be working through repertoire and the associated specific skills and theory points from Jazz School UK Levels 1 - ie basic jazz harmony, rhythmic concepts and ensemble and improvising skills.

While we will be aiming to internalise as much of possible of the season repertoire (this makes improvising so much easier!) we also have a season learning target - 3 core standards (marked above with an asterix) BY HEART!

Ensemble members can read more about the different levels in the members area.

The courses are for players of any instrument, with or without jazz playing experience. You do need to have fairly good instrumental ability, though, and some jazz listening history.

Are you interested in joining this or another Jazz School UK Ensemble? If so, don't delay...
