Cumbria Music Education Hub is a partnership of key music organisations who are working together to bring music to the children and young people of Cumbria.

We aim to reach as many people as possible, helping them not just to make music, but also develop their personal, social and educational skills.

Through our passion for music we want to inspire and empower by creating opportunity and enjoyment for all.


Focus on ...... jazz workshops

National Youth Jazz Collective and BlueJam Young Jazz Musicians Programme



Dates:    26/27th September
               14/15th November
               23/24th January
               27/28th February

Venue: Penrith Music Centre @ North Lakes School, 
             Huntley Avenue, Penrith, CA11 8NU

A fantastic opportunity for all young musicians, aged 8-18 and of all levels of ability (beginner to advanced), to work with an inspirational team of award winning UK jazz musicians (all of whom are expert jazz educators) including NYJC’s Artistic Director Issie Barratt, and key tutors Tom Hewson, Laura Jurd & Dee Byrne.
The workshops will focus on small group improvisation and composition, working in streamed groups of similar levels of ability - from beginner to advanced. We encourage players of all instruments - even those not traditionally associated with jazz - so please, don't be shy! 
The programme consists of 4 intensive weekends of workshops led by NYJC’s inspirational team of tutors. All days start at 10am and finish at 5pm, with an informal concert for family and friends at 4pm each Sunday. To get the best out of this programme, and to ensure consistency for other participants, you need to be able to attend all sessions (please let us know if that’s a problem).   
Course fee: £160 (equivalent to £20/day). We want to ensure that everyone can attend the workshops, regardless of their family’s income, and a bursary scheme is available to help those who need it. Please contact Dee Byrne at NYJC (dee@nyjc.co.uk) in confidence for more information.
To book your place: Please visit the National Youth Jazz Collective website http://nationalyouthjazz.co.uk/blue-jam-jazz and fill in the online application form.
