This ensemble works on a range of scores including traditional and modern jazz repertoire. This group is for young musicians aged 14-18 to develop their skills in ensemble playing, sight-reading, playing by ear, and improvisation techniques. The sessions use historic and modern scores as the starting point for rehearsals and develop listening, playing and performance skills.
Vocalists are welcome – your instrument is your voice!
Currently, this group rehearses every Saturday during term-time from 11:00 – 13:30. This group is led by Winston Clifford.

I’ve really developed my understanding of jazz styles and music and NYJO has been an integral part of that – I’m hoping to improvise more in the future!
I think I’ve progressed a lot in my piano-playing at NYJO. It’s not really my primary instrument but NYJO has helped me to flourish and really enjoy it.
The people are like-minded and are all really kind
