NYJOS – Summer School


The summer school represents a wide range of ability but a common enthusiasm for jazz. Any instrument is welcome. Students gain experience of playing in small combos and enjoy classes covering rhythm, harmony, listening, theory and much more. Each day of the summer school concludes with a jazz club where anyone can take the floor.

Thanks to the support of Creative Scotland’s Youth Music Initiative, a number of subsidised places are available for our Training Ensembles and Jazz Summer School. Please visit our Financial Assistance page for further information.

NYOS Jazz applications are now closed and will open again in September 2020.
