Come and work alongside some of the UKs finest jazz musicians including Academy leader, Joe Browne (encoremusicians.com/Joe-Browne), NYJO Ambassadors and Lancashire Music Hub tutors. The sessions will mainly focus on small band and improvisation skills, complementing the excellent county jazz orchestra opportunities we have in the county.

The Lancashire NYJO Academy aims to cater for both intermediate and more advanced musicians and we welcome any instrument (including voice). We would recommend you are a minimum of grade 3/4 standard on your instrument (this is only a guide and recognise that many musicians don’t take formal exams).

The sessions are currently offered FREE of charge.

This is part of NYJO’s aim to ‘level the playing field for jazz education’ so that young musicians from across the UK have equal opportunities to develop their talents. There are also NYJO Academies  in Cumbria, Wiltshire, Darlington and London..
