Course No. 3171
Ensemble Course

This weekend course is intended to be an opportunity to develop jazz performance skills in a friendly, relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Jazz performances are usually created from a “lead sheet” that gives just the melody and chord symbols. As a result, everything needed to turn this basic information into a performance will be covered during this course, and the weekend will finish with an informal performance of the jazz tunes covered earlier in the course.


All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, roughly 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.

A £50 deposit is required to guarantee your place on a course. The total course fee is inclusive of all meals and tuition except breakfast, which is included in the separate B&B price.
