Popular & Contemporary Programme

Popular & Contemporary Programme

Study Leader: James Birkett

The Popular & Contemporary Programme is designed for those young musicians who wish to explore and develop their interest in a wide range of performance styles including jazz, rock, funk, blues and fusion music.

For those who are considering music as a career choice, the curriculum covers all of the aspects of musicianship that are required for progression to study at diploma or degree level, and which ultimately lie at the heart of professional work.

We also encourage our players to apply for an audition for Jambone which runs fortnightly throughout the year.

For further information on the Centre for Advanced Training, including on dates and content of auditions, please click on Information for Students
