NYJO Learning: National

NYJO develops open-access programmes with clearly established pathways for progression, in which achievements are celebrated at every level. Our national programme is based around Widening Access partnerships where we develop initiatives that respond to our partners’ work and their communities’ needs.

Widening Access Programme

We deliver year-round jazz education programmes in partnership with Music Education Hubs, schools & educators. Partners provide local knowledge and infrastructure to identify need, facilitate provision and ensure sustained impact.

We have developed/are developing bespoke projects with each of the following partners:

  • Cardiff & Rhondda Cynon Taf
  • Cumbria
  • Durham & Darlington
  • Humberside
  • Kent
  • Lancashire
  • Leicestershire
  • Wiltshire

Cardiff & Rhondda Songwriting Project

In Spring 2022, we were delighted to work with Cardiff and Vale Music Services and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama on a songwriting project.

NYJO Jazz Messengers

In July 2022, NYJO Learning embarked on a Greenwich Jazz Messengers Schools’ Tour aimed at inspiring young people to take up an instrument and get involved in extra-curricular music-making.
