Under the advice of the Government and Department for Education we are working hard to get the Brighton & Hove Youth Jazz Band back up and running as soon as possible.
Until we can see you again in person, here are some Virtual Music Centre Activities to suit current Jazz Band Members.
Venue: Varndean School
Day/Time: Tuesday, 4.30 – 5.30pm
Leader: Richard Baker
Jazz Band provides an opportunity for players to develop improvisation and reading skills, while exploring a broad range of music. Recent performances have included swing, blues and Latin classics, through to modern day pop and funk styles. For many students this is their first experience of playing in a specialist jazz ensemble.
Applications are invited from students of saxophone, trumpet and trombone who have reached a standard of Grade 4 and students of drum kit, guitar, bass (acoustic or electric) and keyboard, with the required reading skills. Applicants may be asked to attend an informal audition.
