Esk Valley outreach project
A jazz outreach project for 300 children at the 8 primary schools in the Esk Valley Alliance in North Yorkshire near Whitby.
A successful pilot partnership project in two primary schools in North Yorkshire led to a second project with NYMAZ, Live Music Now, and North Yorkshire Music Hub. Our Esk Valley jazz outreach project reached 300 children at 8 primary schools in the Esk Valley Alliance in North Yorkshire near Whitby.
Three Leeds College of Music jazz alumni and current Live Music Now artists Tom Sherman, Sam Vicary and Ali Mac led the project. We recruited a group of assistant music leaders to gain experience working alongside the leader. The assistant music leaders were Robin Porter, Matt Parkinson, Angus Milne, Declan Forde and Ben Lowman.
