At the beginning of 2018 we were delighted to announce the funding of Sage Gateshead’s Young Musician’s Programme for one year. The programme enables a diverse group of young people to come together and meet likeminded individuals with a passion for music-making and jazz, collaborate artistically and learn from our inspirational tutors and world-renowned visiting artists.

This programme offers an exceptional opportunity to study jazz music in the North East, through:

  • a Centre for Advanced Trainingwith opportunities to study jazz in a broader context of musicianship, theory and skills,
  • Jambone, a regional youth ensemble,
  • Jazz Attack, a training ensemble.

We aim to bring music in all its forms to people of all ages and walks of life, regardless of background or circumstances. This funding will allow a greater variety of musicians of all ages and abilities to access jazz through our ensembles and enable them to learn and grow as individuals and musicians, as well as offering them the opportunity to progress to further levels of study.
