Please help us celebrate our 15th Birthday by making a donation for the use of these resources: so we can continue growing our library of online resources and offering them for free. We’re thrilled to still be here passionately supporting the creative needs of the nation’s up-and-coming jazz stars: Reaching even more young musicians no matter what their financial background; supporting talented young musicians and early professionals to develop their skills and become the new stars of the future. 

It’s been an incredible 15 years of supporting the next generation of creative musicians through our regional workshops, annual Summer School and Short Course and year-long professional development Ambassadors Scheme, and seeing many of NYJC’s alumni going on to be BBC Young Jazz Musician winners, Grammy® winners, recipients of Parliamentary Jazz and Jazz FM Awards, and Paul Hamlyn and Ivor’s Composers Awards

Help us continue our work for future young musicians by donating today.
