workshop diary

We aim to provide a good playing and learning experience for players of all levels, from beginners right through to good gigging standard. Workshop repertoire is based on the Ensemble programme - please look at the playing levels for each Ensemble to determine which repertoire set and playing day will be suitable, and don't hesitate to contact us for more detailed advice.

Some days are already full and marked RESERVE LIST ONLY (great to know there's so much pent-up jazz demand out there!) - places still available for all others.
