The London Jazz Scene is on fire right now with artists like Ezra Collective, Nubya Garcia and Moses Boyd tearing it up at festivals and on TV, and performing around the world.
Trinity Laban has teamed up with Tomorrow’s Warriors to deliver The Jazz Hang. The Jazz Hang is aimed at young musicians aged 11-16 who are at an early stage in their engagement with Jazz and want to learn more about it, but don’t know where to start. After a series of taster sessions in Autumn 2020, delivered by Tomorrow’s Warriors’ incredible Music Leaders, the Jazz Hang is now happening weekly with a core group of young musicians on board.
