Can you help us nurture a nation of young jazz musicians?
Your donation, of any size, will help us to support more musicians like those in our case studies.
£20 could provide transport for a young musician facing rural isolation in Cumbria to attend a residential jazz course.
£50 could provide an hour’s 1:1 mentoring to an emerging professional musician, for example to accelerate skills progression, or provide specialist counselling for performance anxiety.
£100 could provide a bursary for a young musician in Woolwich to attend a NYJO holiday course spending 4 days developing composition and improvisation skills.
Thank you so much for your support. If you’re able to make a recurring donation, have you considered joining our Friends of NYJO, to get closer to our work while supporting a good cause?
Growing up in rural North Devon, Emma didn’t discover jazz until the age of 15, and didn’t pick up a tenor saxophone until a year later, but had spent her childhood otherwise immersed in largely folk and classical music.
