Tuesday 4 – Thursday 6 August, 2015. 10.00 – 16.00

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, King Charles Court, Greenwich SE10 9JF

Young musicians were invited to join Trinity Laban and the Julian Joseph Jazz Academy for 3 days of jazz exploration. They worked alongside internationally acclaimed jazz star Julian Joseph and a team of top jazz musicians and educators to improve musicianship, ensemble playing and improvisation, and learn about influential figures that have shaped the genre of jazz.

To take part in the project, pupils had to be of secondary school age up to 18, and a minimum of grade 3 or equivalent standard on their chosen instrument. Singers and players of any instrument were welcomed, and it was designed for both experienced jazz players and jazz first timers who were keen to learn!
