Championing young jazz musicians and inspiring the next generation


The Cambridge Jazz Festival is a not-for-profit community interest organisation and there would be no festival without the generous support of our funders, sponsors, partners, friends, family and volunteers.  In order to sustain our projects with children and young people we really need your support.


Transforming Lives

In addition to bringing some of finest UK jazz musicians in the UK, the Festival also aims is to support and help inspire the next generation of jazz musicians and to help raise awareness into the benefits of music and music therapy in our community.

Educational Programme

In partnership with Council music hub, Cambridgeshire Music, Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) and the University of Cambridge, the Cambridge Jazz Festival has an all year educational programme to support the teaching of jazz and improvisation to young people and schools and to provide both workshops from leading jazz educationalists/musicians and performance opportunities at the Festival and all year round:

Schools Big Band Concert & Workshop

Cambridgeshire Youth Jazz Orchestra (CYJO) 

Outside the Festival, schools in Cambridgeshire are invited to enrol onto the Festival’s Creative Ensemble and Improvisation Curriculum, which has been written to help enable jazz and other contemporary creative music styles to be taught in schools through ensemble-based learning. The resources provided are designed to allow teachers with little experience of these styles to effectively teach the skills required whilst also allowing more experienced teachers the flexibility to adapt and also teach their own material through the framework.
