About the Specialist Jazz Programme

Designed for specialist jazz musicians, Junior Guildhall's Jazz Programme, run by Jonathan Taylor and Oliver Weston, delivers a full understanding of jazz performance. 

This holistic and structured programme, with timetables tailored to individual student needs, provides young musicians with the ideal environment and expert individual and ensemble tuition required to develop their skills and grounding in jazz.

All students follow a core course of compulsory activities (two lessons on the first study instrument, Jazz Ensemble, Big Band and Musical Awareness classes) as well as a number of optional classes that are common to Music Course students. Some individual lessons are delivered from 5pm on a week day.
