Join this much-loved summer course for a week filled with jazz and rock music, led by Guildhall tutors in our central London location. Back for its 33rd year, this short course is the perfect place for instrumentalists and singers of all ages and abilities to develop new skills, gain inspiration, and meet and perform with like-minded musicians. From jazz combos, to rock bands, big bands to choirs, and improvisation classes to computer music this short course has something for everyone!
Participants are organised into groups by ability, so whether you’re an aspiring professional, enthusiastic amateur, advanced student or relative newcomer, the course caters for all levels and for a range of styles including jazz, rock and world music.
In the evenings course tutors perform exclusive concerts for participants, which are followed by the ‘Club’: Jazz & Rock week’s relaxed ‘open-mic’ type session, where everyone is invited to take the stage in front of a supportive and enthusiastic audience. It’s a busy and vibrant week, beginning on the Sunday afternoon and finishing with a celebratory concert on Friday evening to which friends and family are invited.
