Jazzlines - FREE Opportunities for children and young people

Jazzlines supports the progression of young musicians from ages 11-19. From absolute beginners to experienced artists, everyone is welcome, curiosity and passion about making music is as important as skill and experience.

Professional musicians, like Xhosa Cole, BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year 2018, who attended our programmes as a teen, deliver our programme, inspiring the next generation of young musicians, audiences and producers. Through ensembles, masterclasses, workshops and performance, Jazzlines provides children and young people the chance to develop their skills as jazz and gospel musicians, vocalists and performers. Participants are also able to experience high quality performances by some of the world’s leading jazz musicians.
