Edinburgh Napier University Jazz Summer School is a week-long intensive course, covering practical approaches to improvisation and performance. Designed to develop jazz playing skills for musicians of all ages and abilities, the course includes instrumental and ensemble coaching from acclaimed professional jazz musicians/educators under the guest-directorship of bassist Dave Kane.

This year’s course takes place in the Music School at Edinburgh Napier University’s centrally located Merchiston Campus, and offers opportunities to hear complimentary concerts at the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival in the evenings. The week culminates in a public concert by the students performing in ensemble groups.

Tutors this year will include: Konrad Wiszniewski (reeds), Chris Greive (brass), Haftor Medbøe and Jose Dias (guitar) and Steve Hamilton (piano).
