jazz futures

New Generation Jazz are proud to present JAZZ FUTURES - our free access Jazz Education programme for young people.

You can join in the weekly sessions  where players of intermediate and above ability can learn about all aspects of playing jazz in a supportive and fun environment as members of the band. In Brighton, we run FUTURE FUTURES (8-12 years) and JAZZ FUTURES (13-18 years) under the tutelage of Matt Ellis. In Shoreham-by-Sea you can join FUTURE FUTURES WEST (8-12 years) or  JAZZ FUTURES WEST  (12-18 years) under the leadership of Claire Ellis and Will Gardner at Ropetackle Arts Centre. Both our courses are enhanced with mentorship from top visiting UK Jazz artists, specially commissioned compositions, real world performance opportunities at major local festivals, and a unique opportunity to meet and make music with like minded young musicians.

All courses are offered free of charge.

Engaging the next generation of young players is at the heart of our mission at New Generation Jazz.
Creating a pathway into jazz for young aspiring players is vitally important to foster the sustainability and growth of the local scene. New Generation Jazz have partnered with a team of inspiring musical mentors and educators from across the entire region to launch the New Generation Jazz Futures programme - a fun, inclusive, comprehensive introduction to jazz, offered free of charge. 

Each week Matt and Claire will lead a two-hour session  offering expert hands-on tuition in an aspect of playing jazz. We will also feature regular special guest mentors drawn from the best local and London -professionals.  

Full backline, drum kit and keyboard provided in a COVID-safe environment. All tutors are DBS checked. This is a unique opportunity to learn about jazz from the professionals in a friendly, fun and supportive environment. The programme is free to any 11-18 year olds, but  places are limited!
