Late Learners' Jazz Workshops
The NCEM has run Late Learners' Jazz Workshops as part of its jazz programme and hopes to run more in the future.
The workshops are for people who have dabbled with music in their youth, developed an interest whilst supporting and encouraging a child to learn an instrument or reaching a certain age and realising that this is something that they really want to do.
They are led by jazz musician Rob Lavers and his session players, these workshops have been extremely inspirational, great fun and provided an opporutnity for individuals to get together and play as part of a band.
Here are some comments from past participants:
'First class musician leadership!'
'Just the right level and involving everyone in the group'
'It's great to have the opportunity to play with others of a similar level'
'I welcomed the opportunity to meet and play with older beginners'
'The sessions have given me the confidence to play again in company'
"Very enjoyable, helpful musicians leading and friendly atmosphere'
'The workshop gave me the confidence to have a go at something outside of my comfort zone!'
