STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

A wonderful opportunity to enjoy and share your love for the sound of the Big Band in the company of the like-minded. We’ll cover a wide range of repertoire under the expert guidance of Paul Eshelby, trumpeter with the BBC Big Band, who has played with everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Phil Collins via Shirley Bassey. There will be sectionals, and visiting tutors will also give some solo coaching. We’re looking for saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, bass and drum players of intermediate standard upwards, and we’ll be working alongside the Big Band Singing Summer School. We begin at 6.30pm on the first day and finish after breakfast on the final day. And naturally, automatic right of entry to the annual A Night of Jazz concert on Thursday 26 July is included.
