Any young aspiring jazz musician in full-time education with an interest in developing big band and improvisation skills is welcome to join the KYJO ‘family’.
You don’t have to be an experienced jazzer to join. The first hour of every rehearsal is open to all, giving newcomers the chance to find their ‘jazz feet’ at their own pace. Graham, Mike and other tutors and band members are there to help along the way. When they think you are ready to play at gigs, they will invite you to do so.
Tuition and rehearsals take place every other Tuesday evening from 7.00-9.30 pm (see Calendar for dates and venues). The first term is free, and subsequently cost just £60.00 per term. Assistance with fees may be available.
If you are interested, come along to a gig to see the band in action, book a place at a workshop or come along to a rehearsal.
But, be warned, it can be addictive…
