Free Jazz Workshops

Updated: Jan 19

We're offering three FREE jazz workshop days from the National Youth Jazz Collective in South Derbyshire this Spring. ALL instruments, including singers, are welcome – not just jazz! No music grades are required – but a basic ability (similar to grade 3) at entry level is recommended.


All three workshops are at the Pingle Academy, Swadlincote on:

4th February 2023 10-6pm with a “sharing” for family & friends at 4.30pm

11th March 2023 10-6pm with a “sharing” for family & friends at 4.30pm

13th May 2023 10-6pm with Public Performance at 4.30pm


The workshops will provide you with the opportunity to work in highly creative sessions that are informal, participative and good fun. Each workshop will improve your ability to play by ear, improvise, compose and arrange together and create new musical ideas. Building your confidence as an improviser, composer and band member within a nurturing and supportive environment.


Participants will be divided into beginner intermediate and advanced groups – so you’ll always be playing with other young musicians at your level of ability.


This is an opportunity not to be missed!
