While I have the somewhat unflattering title of Co-ordinator of Jazz Studies I realise that I have the dream job!
At RNCM, rather than offer a full-time, specialist course in jazz we aim to make the opportunity to study jazz available to all students.
RNCM provides many opportunities for students to expand their skills and knowledge of jazz styles and improvisation.

I run these classes...
