Jazz for Schools 2018

Looking back at Jazz for Schools 2018

Concert for Schools – live jazz for primary schools presented by musicians from the Musicate programme.

The music was great and the introduction to all the different types of jazz excellent. The children enjoying live performance of music is a critical experience too.

Behind the Scenes at Friday Night is Music Night – an interactive panel event exploring the music industry, followed by exclusive access to the rehearsal.

I could not hope for a better example of a premium music/broadcast experience just half a mile away from campus! Please repeat this!

Jazz It Up – performance opportunities for secondary school jazz bands.

It continues to be the highlight of our band’s year. Prestigious venue, great team, amazing experience all round – long may it continue!

Teacher, St Peter’s High School
