The Original UK Jazz Summer School
Nominated for the 2020 All Parliamentary
Jazz Appreciation Award for Jazz Education!
A Jazz Summer School based in the UK which has, since 1966, consistently delivered the highest quality jazz tuition one can find. It began in Barry in South Wales and has had several homes over the decades, including Porthcawl, The University of Glamorgan and Trinity College of Music, London. The course returned to South Wales in the summer of 2012 where it is hosted by The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. This college is a beautiful state of the art facility which has benefited from a £22.5m investment. It backs onto the picturesque Bute Park and is only a 10 minute walk from the lively Cardiff City Centre.
We have many years of experience running the Summer School, and during this time have assembled a world-renowned team of tutors.
The course is open to all instrumentalists of all ages and levels of experience. We also welcome singers, who are specifically catered for by our two vocal coaches. We hope you find all the information you are looking for. Please take a moment to browse our Frequently Asked Questions page, and do not hesitate to get in touch should you require any further details.
2021 Summer School goes online...
Tue 27 to Thu 29 July
Unfortunately, due to so many uncertanties still surrounding events this summer, we are unable to run our summer school in person at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. So instead, we will be running a 3 day online course featuring our same great tutors with a flexible program of study you can customise to your own preference. It will be hosted by our sister organisation The Online UK Jazz School.
