Customer comments from recent workshops. 


"The children were enthralled by the music and accompanying patter" 


Favourite part of the show was "the range of music covered". 


"Fab, fun learning experience"


Tony Larner 

Head Teacher, Hartpury Primary




"The show was well planned with variety which informed the children clearly about the history of Jazz, and demonstrated the musical styles in a suitably concise and interesting way" 


"Loved hearing live jazz music brought to life by accomplished musicians and watching the enthusiastic reactions of an attentive audience of 5 to 11 year old children as well as staff (age unknown!). Expertly led and good rapport with the audience"


"Great to keep a mixed audience entertained and informed for a

good length of time"


(Would you recommend JazzClass to another school?)


"Definitely.. we had expected to take our younger children out od the session after 20 minutes but they loved it and maintained concentration for the complete session. Many thanks to all concerned"

What we can do for you


JazzClass is a new venture based in the West Midlands and surrounding area offering various Jazz workshops to schools, colleges and other educational establishments. Our aim is to help educate and improve student’s abilities and confidence with jazz music. Not every music department has such specialist knowledge, and with our help, we make it possible to bring out the latent talents of young music makers.



Ask the people who know about Jazz


Workshops are delivered at your school or establishment by our team of highly qualified, CRB cleared musicians and educators. All are members of the Musicians Union and have public liability insurance. Between us all we have many years of playing and teaching experience within a jazz context and are all working professional musicians. See our 'Musicians' page.



What kind of workshop?


Our workshops are tailored to your needs, whether these are fun performance-led sessions for infants or more in depth tuition and demonstrations with maybe a compositional element complying with the requirements of GCSE's. Please refer to our Details page for more information.  


JazzClass will travel within 100 miles from Birmingham. We are passionate about jazz and hope to deliver a memorable experience as well as having lots of creative fun.
