REPERTOIRE DAYS

How well do you know the essential repertoire of jazz? At Jazz School UK we have a list of about 200 'learners' - these are the tunes that have shaped the playing of jazz musicians, and that are very often called on gigs. The more of these you know by heart, the better you will play. We're tackling these 5 at a time in a series of Repertoire Days, so do come and join us!

 

‣ GENERAL INFORMATION

The venue is the Shoefactory at Rushden, a beautiful Victorian building (with a grand piano in all three playing spaces), which is also the home of Jazz School UK founders Nick Weldon and Andra Sparks. More details, maps and links can be found on our About Us page. The Repertoire Days run 10.30am-6pm. All instruments and singers welcome, suitable for improver, intermediate and advanced players. The cost of each day is £80 (20% member and U18 discounts available).
