Children are natural improvisers – a fact of life the National Curriculum’s planners have now recognised, with their inclusion of improvisation in primary musical education. Jazz Services works tirelessly to expand this awareness, to help foster the jazz musicians and audiences of tomorrow. We run education projects and contribute to facilitating access to jazz throughout the education system.
Jazz Services has worked with the BBC and Associated Board to produce new teaching resources involving jazz at Key stages 3 and 4 and is developing training materials for those active in jazz education and working in the jazz economy.
