The Premises’ 20th Jazz Piano Summer School

Events Description

The Premises’ 20th Jazz Piano Summer School runs from 19-23 August 2017.

Led by Tim Richards, with John Crawford and Nikki Yeoh, this exciting and intensive five-day course is suitable for pianists with some playing experience who wish to learn more about jazz, brush up their improvisation skills, increase their repertoire and gain experience at playing and recording with a rhythm section.

All students may record a tune of their choice on the final day in The Premises’ recording studio – with a bassist and drummer provided.

The course is streamed to cater for students of differing levels of ability and experience. You will be placed in one of two groups on the first day. When not being taught by one of the three tutors, practice facilities will be available.

Places are strictly limited and selling fast.

To book, call Julia Craik on +44 (0)207 729 7593 or email
