Richmond Jazz School

Richmond Jazz School offers a unique range of jazz courses from beginners to advanced levels. We're very proud of the fact that it's one of the largest resources for adult jazz education anywhere in the UK.

Our teaching faculty are not only excellent tutors but also jazz performers at the highest level, regularly playing at top venues in London, nationally and internationally.

Our current jazz instrumental courses are for saxophone and guitar while the jazz rhythm section workshop courses embrace piano, guitar, bass and drums. We offer jazz workshops and ensemble groups for all instruments at all levels and also offer a big band for students able to read at a reasonably fluent level.

Jazz singing is offered to all levels from those just starting out to those advanced students with experience of open mic sessions and their own gigs.

Our intensive courses include our popular one day Christmas course, our three day Easter and five day Summer intensive courses all welcoming both new and existing students.

The RJS Performance Diploma in June enables students to enter for a Trinity Pro-Music Performance Diploma ATCL and applications for this must be made during the spring term. Students from the RJS One Year Course starting in September often take this route alongside other students.

'Richmond Jazz School - Jazz Club' presents termly concerts offering a platform for faculty tutors, visiting jazz artists and the student community. See our events page for more information and some great pictures below - we'd love to see you at our next one!
