Jazz Ensemble

Supporting our talented jazz players.

Jazz Ensemble is directed by acclaimed jazz musician Huw Warren and is open to players of all levels of experience. Learn core skills about improvisation, jazz harmony/theory, and have fun with contemporary jazz and world music styles in a large ensemble setting!

Working both by ear and from charts, the ensemble works towards a performance each semester. Jazz Ensemble also provides an opportunity to attend practical workshops with leading UK jazz musicians, as well as working with major jazz composers on their own music.

Since its formation in 2015, guests have included Laura Jurd, Iain Ballamy, Byron Wallen, Mark Lockheart, Dave Smith, Trish Clowes, Adriano Adewale, Jason Rebello, Alex Merritt, Yuri Goloubev and Steve Berry.

Auditions are held each year for the Jazz Ensemble and non-music students are very welcome. For more information get in touch with Elin Jones.
