What's the York Music Forum Jazz Education Programme?
Our Jazz Education Programme takes young musicians from having never played jazz before to improvising freely and with confidence. Our young musicians also learn to play in together in smaller jazz combos, big bands, funk bands and eventually in our award-winning jazz orchestra plus they can have one-to-one tuition with professional jazz musicians.
In March we were finalists at the 2019 Music Teacher Awards for Excellence.
Our Jazz Orchestra performed at the Royal Albert Hall in November 2019 as part of the prestigious Music For Youth Proms.
The YMF Jazz Education Programme provides 5 and a half hours of jazz education every week during term time.
