Contemporary Programme

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.
