River Music School London and Ronnie Scott's Charitable Foundation

team up to introduce young students to Jazz music

It is a pleasure to announce that we are in collaboration with Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club's 'Big Band In A Day' and 'Young Cats Jazz Workshop'! Students of River Music School London are welcome to be a part of this fantastic opportunity, held at one of the most prestigious jazz clubs in the world. CLICK HERE to see how our last workshop went! More information:

"Big Band In A Day’ is Ronnie Scott’s outreach scheme for developing young musicians in the UK. Once a month, we invite young musicians aged 12-17 (Grade 5+ level) to play in a free one day workshop where they will play and practice as a Jazz Big band and will perform two pieces on the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club main stage that evening. This great workshop led by Pete Long (RS Big Band conductor and artistic director) has welcomed more than a thousand school children from London and around the country. The aim of the workshop is to give the children a core grounding in the skills and disciplines and sounds of a big band, with an emphasis on playing by ear and improvisation. We also offer the 'Young Cats Jazz Workshop' aimed at 8-12 year olds (Grade 3+ level).

Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation is Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club’s non-profit organisation dedicated to the support of jazz and music education in the U.K and beyond. We believe that music education should be available to all, so that all young people benefit from the same opportunities, no matter where they live, what music they play and what their financial background is.

Since its creation in 2015 the Foundation has supported almost fifty projects benefitting hundreds of schoolchildren in the UK and overseas."

Big Band In A Day
