National Partners

The National Youth Jazz Summer School was easily the best residential course I’ve been on. The opportunity to work so closely with musicians of such stature not only made a huge difference to my playing, but also on my entire outlook as a musician, and the way I interact with others. Just two weeks after the course I was playing in gigs with friends I’d met at the NYJC. Overall, the course had a great impact on my development.
