Jazz North Education Conference, June 2019

In January 2019 a hard-hitting report was published by The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Music Education in collaboration with the University of Sussex and the Incorporated Society of Musicians which demonstrated the scale of the crisis facing music education in England.

Its recommendations revealed the breadth of the problem and also how easily the some of the most pressing issues could be addressed with little or no financial cost.

We believe that the jazz sector – musicians, educators and promoters, can have a key role to make a transformational impact on young children inside our schools and through extra-curricular music making activities.

This year’s Jazz North education conference at the University of Huddersfield explored these themes and delegates were given a range of insights and practical advice from leading practitioners and professionals such as Jimmy Rotheram (Feversham Primary), Yolanda Brown, Chris Sharkey, Matt Robinson (More Music), Fatine Boumaaz (Ronnie Scotts’ Charitable Foundation) and Enrico Bertelli (Conductive Music).

We’ve now produced a downloadable conference report.
