WELCOME to Jazz School UK! We offer structured, streamed and personalised programmes of learning for keen players of every level (jazz beginner through to gigging standard). Wherever you are, and whatever level of jazz playing you are aiming for, we are planning to help you to improve!
It's been a challenging time for everyone - at Jazz School UK we have survived only because of the support of our loyal students and tutors - so thank you everyone!
In fact the (enforced) online teaching has proved rather useful - many of us (tutors and students) now think that some aspects of jazz learning, particularly the theory elements, work better online. Separating these out also improves the in-person sessions, allowing us to concentrate more on ensemble skills, improvisation, feel and sound.
Hence along with our in-person sessions (Ensemble, Ensemble Plus and Pathway programmes, Workshop Weekends), this season we'll also be offering some stand-alone online courses (listening, transcription, arranging, blues, I got rhythm, essential piano voicings, axis theory, rhythmic origins, jazz history, harmonic patterns) as well as 121 lessons (instrumental, theory, improvisation).
