For any aspiring Jazz musicians or in fact anybody just wanting to know more about the world of improvisation, I can’t recommend this UK jazz summer school highly enough.
Course Dates for 2012
We shall be running a one week course in 2012 at The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama from Sunday 29 July to Friday 3 August.
This Jazz course was recently held at Trinity College of Music, London, however this summer the course is returning to it’s original home of Wales for 2012 where it will be hosted by The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
This college is a beautiful state of the art facility which has recently benefited from a £22.5m investment. It backs onto the picturesque Bute Park and is only a 10 minute walk from the lively Cardiff City Centre. Click here for a 360 degree virtual tour.
Course directors Dave Wickins and Buster Birch have had many years of experience running the Summer School, and during this time have assembled a world renowned team of tutors.
Alison Rayner – Bass, Chris Batchelor – Trumpet, Dave Hassell – Drums, Geoff Simkins – Saxes, Lee Goodall – Saxes, Liam Noble – Piano, Pete Churchill – Piano, Steve Watts – Bass.
I’ve played with some of these great musicians and I learned so much, just from one evening.
The course is open to all instrumentalists of all ages and levels of experience. We also welcome singers, who are specifically catered for by our vocal coach.
