Jazz Workshop hits the right notes with Sixth Form musicians

Influences play an important part in the development of a musician, therefore having the ability to explore as many different styles of music is important for our students. One of the styles of music that has taken influences from other genres is Jazz.

Our BTEC Music students in Year 12 and 13 were treated to a Jazz Workshop at Bourne Town Hall led by Stamford-based saxophonist, Jay Stebb. Our Sixth Formers joined forces with each other to create a wonderfully colourful version of ‘Little Sunflower’ composed by Jazz Trumpet player, Freddie Hubbard.

The ensemble consisted of vocalists, pianists, drummers, guitarists and a trumpet player to stretch all of the musicians to their musical limits.

Sarah O’Brien, Teacher of Music at Bourne Academy said “Students were taken out of their usual comfort zones by exploring the realms of improvisation and other notable playing techniques of the genre. We would like to thank Jay Stebb and the volunteers at Bourne Town Hall for their warm hospitality and giving this great opportunity for our Sixth Form music students.”
