Book now for weekend workshop 1-2 August at the Globe, Newcastle upon Tyne

Here's a good opportunity for anyone who plays a bit of jazz and wants to get better ... a whole weekend of listening and playing in the company of others who want to learn and improve jazz skills.
The weekend workshop has been developed following the success of our monthly Play Jazz! afternoon workshops held at Sage Gateshead. The weekend format will give participants the time and space to learn more and develop further. There’s also a great gig on the Saturday night and the opportunity to jam with professional musicians.
The tutors are James Birkett and Judith Thompson, two superb musicians and highly respected jazz educators.
The workshop is suitable for all instruments and a range of abilities. Vocalists are welcome. Minimum age 16.
For much of the weekend the participants will be divided into two groups – beginner/intermediate and intermediate/advanced. You’ll be able to improvise and interact with other musicians in an informal supportive situation.
