Join us for the JMI Youth Big Band Summer Workshop on 28 & 29 August 2024 at the Vortex Jazz Club in Dalston! 

Open to young musicians aged 11-19 with Grade 5+ ability on their chosen instrument, this exciting two-day course will immerse students in Jewish modes, scales, unique contemporary compositions, solo playing, improvisation, and ensemble playing. 

Led by expert educators including the band’s Musical Director Sam Eastmond, participants will experience an inspiring journey through the rich traditions of Jewish music. We are especially seeking talented trumpet and saxophone players to complete this year’s lineup. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to learn, play, and grow with JMI!

The 2 day course will take place at the Vortex Jazz Club in Gillett Square, Dalston.

Participants will have the amazing opportunity to take part in an afternoon concert at The Vortex on Sunday 8th September 2024!

All music is provided as charted notation, therefore the recommended minimum sight-reading level for participants is Grade 5 or equivalent. Contact JMI Education & Development Manager Raphael Knapp for more information, or simply sign up below!

N.B. There is currently a waiting list for drums/percussion, bass, guitar and piano players. Please email Raphael for further information before signing up on these instruments.
