About this event

Jazz on the Road is an intensive programme that focuses on the fundamentals of jazz music and its associated business aspects for young musicians.

The workshops will encourage students who already play jazz to improve, supporting the development of musical skills in young people.

Participants gather to share, develop and challenge their own ideas and abilities. Our stellar faculty of world-renowned musicians, innovators, leaders and thinkers present master classes, lectures, workshops, informal sessions and a concert

The workshop is open to all musicians and music educators. Participants must have their own instruments to participate in the programme, or are welcome to observe.

Subject areas include jazz rhythms, jazz articulation, performance within the band, jazz improvisation, music reality (theory), team building through music, leadership and performance.

The programme exposes students and interested adults to leading musicians and professionals in education, business and performance.
