We are proud to support NYJC in the first year of their ambitious workshop expansion. This will bring the chance to practice music to over 500 children in 10 underprivileged areas across the United Kingdom. These workshops, run over six Sundays between October and June, will bring opportunities to young jazz musicians and end with a final public concert. Subsidies and bursaries are available for those who might not be able to afford full price. Follow this link to find out more and how to get involved:

The National Youth Jazz Collective owes a huge debt of gratitude to Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation. Through your generosity we have been able to expand our regional work from serving London and Hampshire out to six centres this year, and to a planned 12 by 2021. Ronnie Scott’s Foundation will help us discover and develop new jazz talent from Southampton to Newcastle, from Bristol to Southend. You have had the vision to match our ambitions and underwrite the tuition of those who couldn’t afford it wherever we start new workshops – that will change many lives as well as bring new music into being – what a great legacy! Thanks.

Executive Director
