Following on from the launch event in July, the Hampshire Jazz Centre will seek to provide musically enriching opportunities for young musicians in the field of Jazz. This will include improvisation sessions, practical workshops on functional harmony, as well as combo and large ensemble experiences for young players of grade/stage 5 standard and above:

  • saxophone
  • trumpet
  • trombone
  • bass/guitar
  • double bass
  • keyboard
  • percussion

The Hampshire Jazz Centre provides a wonderful opportunity to support students with their exploration and development of jazz music in a range of exciting genres and ensemble settings. The young musicians will build their confidence and start to develop their mastery of jazz vocabulary and harmony, learning a breadth of exciting jazz repertoire and led by excellent educators in this field.

Each term there will be opportunities for the young jazz musicians to work and engage with visiting professionals to progress their learning and musicianship, such as the superb ‘Beats and Pieces’ Big Band.
