In September 2007, the North East Jazz Strategy Group supported by Arts Council England North East, commissioned a research project into jazz education provision across the NE region, with a view to using it to inform a long-term jazz education strategy. The research brief sought the level and types of jazz education provision in primary and secondary schools and also within music services and more informal workshop and extra curricula contexts. In addition, both pupil and teacher perceptions of jazz were to be investigated. The document, authored by Dr Kathy Dyson, was intended not only to inform policy and strategy across the region, but also to act as a lobbying document and to be used to apply for additional funding.
