New music programme to bring Jazz to primary schools

Camden Music Hub launches new music programme to bring Jazz to primary school children and create Jazz musicians of the future!

Jazz Connect is a two-year, Camden based music programme that aims to increase awareness of jazz amongst children and young people and encourage the involvement of young women in jazz. This innovative project is the brainchild of Camden Music Hub partners, conservatoires, professional artists and national jazz organisations who all have a passion for the British Jazz music scene.

What makes this initiative unique is that children and young people involved in Jazz Connect will get to work with inspirational professional musicians including the Loop Collective, Pete Churchill, Professor of Jazz Composition, Royal Academy of Music, and Camden Music Service alumna Nubya Garcia. Focusing on vibrant jazz music the project aims to engage younger and female musicians in particular, and to develop and sustain their interest and, longer term, to change the profile of British jazz.
