2022 Summer Jazz Course

21-27/08/2022 University of Chichester


The course is suitable for all Instrumentalists and Vocalists aged 14+, from improvers to advanced. A good basic command of the instrument is necessary. The course is not suitable for instrumental or vocal novices.

The course is led by some of the most respected and accomplished tutors in the UK who have many years’ experience both as teachers and musicians of international repute. Teaching is thus of the highest standard and groups are small to ensure individual attention is given to all students. The course offers intensive learning in an environment with like-minded people.

For students intending to apply Music Schools, Academies and Conservatoires, we also offer audition preparation and mock auditions lead by Music Academy professors.

Our courses are residential and fees fully inclusive of tuition, accommodation, dinner, coffee/tea and breakfast, free on campus parking. So no hidden extras!

The Course is held at University of Chichester, College Lane, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 6PE
